Arkansas Legislature to Attempt Override of Huckabee Veto

April 15, 2006 - Posted at 12:52 p.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ Arkansas legislators plan to return to Little

Rock next week to try to override Governor Huckabee's veto of

570-thousand dollars in funding for a program to improve science

instruction in the public schools.

Senate leader Jim Argue and House leader Bill Stovall issued a

proclamation yesterday, calling legislators back to the state

Capitol next Friday to attempt to override Huckabee's veto of money

for the elementary science specialist program.

Huckabee vetoed the bill Wednesday after both houses of the

legislature passed it during a special session. The governor said

using money from the state Department of Higher Education for the

program would jeopardize college scholarships.

Argue and Stovall said there was enough support in both the

House and the Senate to override the veto.
