COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Vetoes that legislators will consider overriding when they return this week include budget items that expand residential schools for talented students and that upgrade schools for troubled teens.

Gov. Nikki Haley vetoed spending that allows 85 more students to enroll in the Governor's School for Science and Math and increases visual arts offerings at the Governor's School for Arts and Humanities. Other vetoes would replace inefficient, 47-year-old windows at Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School and upgrade technology at John de la Howe School.

The vetoes for the residential schools tally $3.4 million.
