It looks like Bruce Babbitt is going to remain the last Arizona governor to have a veto overridden, at least for the time being.

House Speaker Rusty Bowers, R-Mesa, told Capitol Media Services he decided not to ask his chamber to override a measure vetoed last month by Gov. Doug Ducey making technical corrections in state statutes. That was one of 22 measures vetoed a month ago by the governor because he was unhappy with legislative progress on the budget.

Instead, the House voted simply to re-enact the same language, tacking it on to another bill.

Bowers’ decision comes less than a week after the Senate voted 25-5 to instead bypass Ducey’s veto and enact the law despite it. That was more than the two-thirds vote needed for an override.

Sen. Tyler Pace, R-Mesa, who led that charge, acknowledged there is nothing controversial in the measure.
