The Legislature is expected to decide Wednesday whether to try to override Gov. Bobby Jindal’s veto of a 4-cent state cigarette tax renewal, a bill sponsored by State Rep. Harold Ritchie, D-Bogalusa, and supported by Sen. Karen Peterson, D-New Orleans, and Sen. Lydia Jackson, D-Shreveport.

House Speaker Jim Tucker, R-Terrytown, said he is uncertain whether there are the 70 votes needed in the House to override Jindal and allow House Bill 591 to become law.
