(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The Utah Legislature will hold a special session today to override some of Governor Olene Walker's vetoes.

Legislators are considering overrides on several bills, including ones that change election law, update a law against unfair business practices and appropriate money for disabled children.

Lawmakers decided last week to hold the veto override session.

Governor Walker has questioned legislators' intentions in calling the session so close to the Republican gubernatorial primary.

But House Speaker Marty Stephens, who is also running for the governor's office, says politics aren't involved at all in the decision.
