Governor Tim Pawlenty’s veto on February 22nd of a controversial transportation bill has set the
stage for the DFL-controlled legislature to attempt an override. Governor Pawlenty has deployed
the veto more often than all but 2 of his predecessors over the past 70 years, but a rare override
by the legislature would also make the record books.
