North Carolina House Votes to Override Governor’s Budget Veto
In an early-morning move earlier this week that shocked and confused many, the North Carolina House of Representatives voted to override Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget. Just over half of the 120 members were present to vote. All 55 Republicans present voted in favor of the override. Just 15 Democrats were in the Chamber and all voted against the override. The Senate is scheduled to take up a vote on the override next week. If the Senate votes to override, the budget passed nearly two months ago by Republican majorities will go into effect and the long session will, in all probability, wind down quickly.
