Governor Bob Riley is not giving up on his effort to put ethical standards for teachers in Alabama's administrative code.
Riley was surrounded Tuesday by teachers and school administrators when he vetoed a resolution passed by the Legislature that rejected the code.
The Alabama Education Association opposed the ethics standards, saying they were too vague.
The code of ethics includes language saying teachers should not use alcohol or tobacco at school, should not misuse public funds and should not commit child abuse.
The resolution now goes back to the Legislature where it will need 18 votes in the Senate and 53 in the House to override the governor. The resolution originally passed the Senate 18-10 and by a 43-32 vote in the House.
