Arizona Senate overrides a governor’s veto for first time in 40 years

PHOENIX — State senators did something Thursday they haven’t done in four decades: voted to override a gubernatorial veto and set the stage for the House to do the same.

And now they’re hoping that Republican Gov. Doug Ducey doesn’t retaliate.

The 25-5 vote came on one of the 22 bills that Ducey vetoed a month ago because he was upset that the Republican-controlled Legislature had failed to send him a state budget. The Senate needed just 20 to get the required two-thirds vote for the override.

Senators also voted on Thursday to repass new versions of 21 of the measures and send them back to the governor.
