Lawmakers Return To Consider McAuliffe Vetoes

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia lawmakers are returning to Richmond to consider Gov. Terry McAuliffe's changes to the General Assembly's 2014 legislation.
    
Legislators will consider McAuliffe's vetoes and proposed changes to several dozen pieces of legislation during a one-day session Wednesday.
    
McAuliffe has vetoed two bills concerning religious expression. One would have codified a student's right to pray at school. The other would have prohibited censorship of sermons made by chaplains of the Virginia National Guard.
    
The governor also vetoed a bill that would give people who receive red-light tickets the right to contest citations in circuit court. That bill passed the House 99-0 and the Senate 38-1.
    
The General Assembly won't take up the state's budget. Republicans and Democrats remained deadlocked on whether the budget should include expanding Medicaid eligibility.
