Both chambers of the General Assembly reconvened today for the Override session....the chance for lawmakers to override the governor's veto -- or vetoes. But it doesn't appear, at least initially, it will be very productive.

First...the only veto to be put on the agenda is Rell's veto of the minimum wage bill. Lawmakers apparently have no intention of putting any of the other bills out there.

And there's a question of whethre enough lawmakers show up. The House needs 101 votes to succeed, and the question as to whether 101 lawmakers in favor of overrding the veto will make the trip to Hartford.

This special session could end up mirroring the regular session -- nothing done.
