AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A bill introduced in response to a car crash that killed 15-year-old Brunswick girl last year will become law after lawmakers overrode Gov. Paul LePage’s veto.

The Democratic-led House voted 114-32 on Thursday to override the Republican governor’s veto. The Senate supported the measure Wednesday.

The measure will provide car decals to young drivers so parents and law enforcement can more easily identify intermediate license holders. Supporters say that will help parents and police officers determine whether a person is supposed to be driving with a passenger.

The House overrode LePage’s veto on two other bills, including one that would require the Department of Education to adopt new science standards for K-12 students. The Senate must now consider that measure.

The Senate also voted to override two vetoes on Thursday.
