SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah legislators say they won’t override a handful of vetoes from Gov. Gary Herbert.

Senate and House leaders released polls Monday revealing that 61 legislators opposed undoing the governor’s action on three measures. Forty-two legislators voted in favor.

The vetoed proposals deal with legislative subpoenas, parental review of school curriculum and government fee-assessment areas.

Herbert has said the bill to bolster legislative subpoena power could violate civil rights by barring people from challenging a legislative subpoena in court.

The school-curriculum bill would have tasked an existing parent committee with reviewing complaints related to lessons and class materials, a duty Herbert says should first go to school boards.

The third bill Herbert vetoed was a technical proposal he said delayed six natural-gas projects in rural Utah that were ready to go.
