Charleston, WV (AP) -- The House is giving a number of vetoed bills a shot at a second chance.

Delegates voted Tuesday to fix all 11 of its regular session measures that Gov. Joe Manchin vetoed.

The Governor blamed technical errors for each. The Senate must also re-pass these bills, and is expected to take up at least some of its nine disapproved measures.

Among other topics, the remedied legislation would extend a program promoting drug-free workplaces to county and local government projects.

Another would offer tax credits for solar energy systems.

One would create the governor's Office of Health Enhancement and Lifestyle Planning.

This go-help agency is considered key to the latest push by state officials to improve health care access in West Virginia.
