Another Shot at Veto Override Not Likely
The DNR secretary appointment issue is dead for now. La Crosse state rep, Jennifer Shilling doesn't expect lawmakers to give another shot at overriding governor Doyle's veto of a bill to restore DNR secretary appointment authority to the state's natural resources board.
