Senate overrides Otter veto on bowling alley smoking

The Senate has voted 29-6 to override Gov. Butch Otter’s veto of the legislation banning smoking in Idaho bowling alleys. “For us to walk away and assume his veto is somehow better than our collective wisdom would be a great disservice to the people we represent,” Sen. Brent Hill, R-Rexburg, told the Senate. There was no debate, and the override passed overwhelmingly.
