Lawmakers have 2 days to decide whether to override Governor's veto

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Lawmakers return to the Capitol tomorrow, with only two days left to pass remaining legislation.

Among the issues they could be discussing, will be whether to override the Governor's veto of the religious freedom bill.

It would have protected people who choose to ignore laws that they believe violate their religious beliefs.

Opponents feared it could have led to discrimination.

But, supporters say it would further clarify religious freedoms in the state.

Members of the General Assembly have until Tuesday to override the veto.
