House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher talks about a likely override vote of Governor Pawlenty’s second veto of General Assistance Medical Care (GAMC). She says the override vote will first be in the Senate where the bill originated and is virtually guaranteed.
The House DFL caucus does not have enough members to guarantee a veto override. It must retain at least 3 of the 38 Republicans who supported GAMC when it passed last week.
Anderson Kelliher says she hopes those 38 Republicans realize they voted right the first time and do not have change their vote.
