Madison - The state Assembly today came up short in its attempt to override Gov. Jim Doyle’s veto of a measure that would have allowed residents to carry concealed weapons.

The 64-to-34 vote was a boost to Doyle, who mustered enough support from fellow Democrats to fend off a veto override on the measure for a second time.

All Republicans voted for the override; they were joined by Democratic Reps. Barbara Gronemus of Whitehall, Mary Hubler of Rice Lake, Marlin Schneider of Wisconsin Rapids and Amy Sue Vruwink of Milladore.

The Republicans needed 66 votes, or a two-thirds majority, to override the veto.

Democratic Reps. Terry Van Akkeren of Sheboygan and John Steinbrink of Pleasant Prairie were the deciding votes. Both earlier had voted for the bill, but switched and backed Doyle on the override attempt. Rep. Joe Parisi (D-Madison) did not vote.

Last week, the Senate voted 23-10 to override, above the two-thirds majority necessary.
