Rule 50.

Vote Requirements

      The question of granting of free conference powers and the question of adoption of a free conference report shall require an affirmative vote of two-thirds (2/3) of the membership of the Senate.

      On the question of an act returned from the Governor with his or her objections, the presiding officer shall submit the following question to the Senate:

            "Shall the act become law, the veto of the Governor to the contrary notwithstanding?"

      And if that question shall be decided in the affirmative by two-thirds (2/3) of the Senators present and voting, then the Governor's veto is overridden.
