LAWMAKERS LOOK FOR VETO OVERRIDE IN FAMILY PLANNING FUNDING

120px-Seal_of_New_Jersey_svgDemocrats are going to try to override a veto by Gov. Chris Christie. The governor vetoed a bill that would give $7.5 million in family planning funding to clinics throughout the state. Christie said the state simply did not have the money to fund the programs. When the vote for the measure went through the Senate the first time, 30 of 40 voted yes. The Star-Ledger reports that three Republicans have already said they will not vote against Christie’s veto, while the other four could not be reached for comment. If four of the seven Republicans flip and vote no the second time around, then the veto-override will not have enough support.
