“In a surprise move Wednesday morning, the N.C. House of Representatives voted to override Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget with just over half of the 120 members present to vote,” the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
“Democrats in the chamber objected to the bill being brought up, saying they were told there would be no votes during the 8:30 a.m. session and that it was just a formality so work could begin. Rep. Jason Saine (R) made the motion to reconsider the state budget and chaos in the chamber quickly ensued.”
Slate reports Democrats were at a 9/11 ceremony and had been promised no votes would be scheduled.Save to Favorites
