Council Overrides Weapons Veto
As expected, an override of La Crosse mayor Matt Harter's veto of a weapons ban in city buildings. Not as expected, the margin for the veto was close. 12 city council members voted to override Harter's veto at a meeting last night. Exactly the number needed for the override. The council had originally voted 16 to 1 for the weapons ban. Harter had argued that a weapons ban actually made city buildngs less safe. The La Crosse center and libraries, operated by independent boards, could still allow weapons.
