Alabama House overrides governor's objection to the school start date bill

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Alabama public schools are a step closer to having a required 12-week summer vacation.

Gov. Robert Bentley today objected to a lawmaker-approved bill that would mandate summer break dates for public schools, saying school systems should be able to set their own schedules.

Bentley returned the bill to lawmakers without his signature and with a suggested executive amendment to give school systems the ability to opt out of the set schedule. However, the House of Representatives tonight voted 71-21 to override the governor's veto.

Alabama senators must now decide what to do on the issue.
