(Neb.) - Showdown expected on Nebraska session's final day
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska lawmakers will spend their final day of this year's session trying to override Gov. Dave Heineman's vetoes.
Lawmakers are scheduled to meet for their 60th and final day on April 18. The last day was postponed to give them time to vote on any of Heineman's vetoes. Heineman has five days to sign or veto a measure he receives, not counting Sundays.
At stake are at least three bills the governor opposes: A proposal to allow machine bets on old horse races, a sales tax measure for Nebraska cities, and legislation that would restore state-funded prenatal care coverage for low-income women, including illegal immigrants.
