This afternoon, House Republicans (some of whom initially voted for the same budget they voted to reject today) voted as a block to stop an override of Governor Scott’s budget veto. Because there were no GOP defections, the vote was 90-51 to override, but, sadly, that is still 5 measly votes short of the 2/3 needed to spare Vermonters a lot of pain come July 1.

VSEA thanks it’s members, retirees and supporters for your recent calls to targeted GOP lawmakers, who obviously care more about partisan politics than they do about the well being of Vermont and Vermonters.
