Alabama Senate overrides Governor Riley's veto

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - A veto by Governor Riley has been overridden by the Alabama Senate. It blocks a plan that would allow state agencies to make employees take unpaid vacation in order to avoid layoffs.
     
The plan had been opposed by the Alabama State Employees Association.
      
Now, it is up to House members to decide whether to override the veto as well.
