NASHVILLE (AP) — The speakers of the Tennessee House and Senate say they don't expect any more vetoes from fellow Republican Gov. Bill Haslam.

Sen. Ron Ramsey and Rep. Beth Harwell told reporters on Thursday that they hadn't heard any indication from the governor that he might reject any more bills awaiting his consideration after a trip to Asia.

The governor has 10 days excluding Sundays to decide whether to sign, veto or allow bills to become law without his signature.

Among the measures Haslam has yet to decide on are legislation seeking to phase out the state's Hall income tax on income from stocks and bonds, requiring a lawsuit to be filed over the federal government's refugee resettlement program and stripping funding from the diversity office at the University of Tennessee.
