INDIANAPOLIS (WHAS11) -- Indiana lawmakers are returning to the statehouse for one day in June in hopes of overriding the governor's veto of a local tax measure.

The General Assembly plans to return on June 12.

They'll consider Governor Mike Pence's veto of legislation authorizing Jackson and Pulaski counties to retroactively collect local option income taxes.

Pence vetoed two other measures dealing with regulations but lawmakers say the local tax issue needed an immediate answer because it could affect tax refunds.

Lawmakers need a majority to override a governor's veto.
