PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Lawmakers are set to return to the state Capitol in Pierre to consider bills vetoed by Gov. Dennis Daugaard.

The final day of the 2016 legislative session is Tuesday. Lawmakers will consider three outright vetoes and weigh style-and-form vetoes of two other measures.

Among the bills that Daugaard vetoed is a plan that would offer a property tax incentive to put in buffer strips between cropland and waterways. Supporters say they hope the rejection can be overridden.

Daugaard said in his veto message that he’s concerned in part that it would shift the property tax burden from people who took advantage of the plan onto other property owners.

Legislators in both chambers approved the buffer strip bill with margins that suggest Daugaard’s veto may be overcome.
