Massachusetts legislators are considering whether to override Gov. Deval Patrick's veto of a capital gains tax bill that contains restrictions for independent authorities seeking to enter into swap agreements.
Lawmakers have not decided if they will take up the issue once the Senate and the House resume formal sessions in mid-September. Patrick vetoed the capital gains bill Friday. Legislators had "a limited" discussion of a potential override of the governor's veto during the weekend, said Wayne Weikel, spokesman for Rep. Charles Murphy, D-Burlington. Murphy chairs the House Ways and Means Committee.
