Taco bell booze veto stands

Mayor Paul Soglin's veto of a local Taco Bell liquor license will stand.  Madison's city council Tuesday night failed to get the votes needed to override the veto. 

Soglin decided to block a Taco Bell Cantina on State Street from selling beer and wine over concerns about alcohol-fueled violence downtown.  

The council needed 14 votes to override the veto but only got nine. 

The discussion might not be over yet. Four alders were not at the meeting, so one of them could call for another vote at the next meeting in two weeks.
