HARTFORD, Conn. – Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy vetoed eight bills this year — including two that lawmakers approved unanimously. But Democratic legislative leaders said they don’t have any plans to attempt to override any of the governor’s vetoes.

Asked if the General Assembly would attempt to override the veto of a bill that would have required health insurance companies and managed-care organizations to report information on substance abuse treatment to the state Insurance Department, House Speaker Brendan Sharkey said flatly “no.”

Any other bills? “No,” Sharkey said Tuesday.

The same holds true for leaders in the upper chamber.

“We do not intend to override the governor on any of his vetoes this year,” Adam Joseph, a spokesman for Senate President Donald Williams, said Wednesday.
