House sustains Minnesota governor's veto of healthcare program

Minneapolis Star Tribune, May 18, 2009

An effort to undo Minneosta Gov. Tim Pawlenty's veto of funding for a healthcare program that serves 30,000 people in the state has failed. The House voted 87 to 47 on a motion to override the veto, short of the required two-thirds majority. The line-item veto revokes $381 million from the General Assistance Medical Care program, essentially killing it beginning in mid-2010.
