Kansas House overides veto of Gov Sam Brownback

The House struck back at Gov. Sam Brownback on Wednesday, voting to override his veto of a massive package of tax increases to fill the states budget shortfall. Brownback vetoed House Bill 2178 in a news conference Wednesday morning after announcing his veto plans Tuesday night.

A little more than an hour later, the House voted 85-40 to override, clearing the minimum threshold of 84 votes. The Senate must also vote to override the veto with a two-thirds majority before the bill can be forced into law.

Brownback slammed the tax bill as a “punitive” increase. He called on lawmakers to work with him to find a solution and said his budget proposal offers a structurally-balanced budget by 2019 – a contention some lawmakers reject. He also called for lawmakers to look for savings.

Trust me,those of us here in Brownbackistan have been watching this like a hawk. Now the Senate MUST do their job which I have doubts will happen. There are 40 Senators,32 Rep and 8 Dems.
