That’s the day the Legislature will be in session to vote on overriding the governor’s veto. It takes a two-thirds majority in both the 24-member Senate and 400-member House to do so.

The bill’s sponsor, state Sen. Matthew Houde, said Wednesday he doesn’t know whether the veto will be sustained. Noting all the outside groups that weighed in _ from the motion picture association to groups representing professional athletes and video game manufacturing, he called the bill the “worst possible example of special interests beating well-intentioned legislation.”

If the veto stands, “Now it just means people like the Salingers need to litigate to protect their family’s privacy. And that, to me, puts the burden on the wrong party,” he said.
