AUGUSTA – Maine lawmakers are attempting to override the Governor’s veto of “Taylor’s Law”.
The measure would require new drivers to have a special sticker on their windshields to alert others that an intermediate driver was behind the wheel.
It was drafted following the crash that killed 15 year old Taylor Darveau of Bucksport, a passenger in a car that was being driven by a teen driver.
Governor Lepage vetoed the measure because he believes the decals could be used to target young drivers for crimes.
The Senate voted to override the veto today.
It will now move to the House where a two thirds majority vote is needed to keep the bill alive.
