Senate President-designate Mike Haridopolos said Wednesday the potential overrides would not include hotly debated bills dealing with teacher merit pay, abortion and elections.

House Speaker-designate Dean Cannon agreed, saying he'd prefer to let those kind of issues wait until next year's regular session.

The two Republican leaders said a prime override candidate is Crist's veto of a $9.7 million budget item for the University of Florida's hospital that would pay to treat uninsured patients and draw down federal matching money.
