SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Legislature has overturned two of Governor Olene Walker's bill vetoes from this year's General Session.

One of the bills limits the number of special elections that can be held each year to two dates. The other outlaws unfair business practices that lead to the loss of intellectual property.

A veto of a budget line item that would have appropriated money to a school for deaf children was overridden in the House. But because the Senate adjourned early without taking up the issue, the veto survived.

A brief attempt to hijack the session from legislative leaders who promised only those two bills would be considered also died with the Senate's departure.

Some House members tried to continue debate on other vetoed bills, but a successful motion to adjourn thwarted them.
