House upholds Pawlenty veto of health program for poor
ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota House upheld Gov. Tim Pawlenty's veto of a health-care program for Minnesota's poorest residents Monday, allowing negotiations on the subject to continue.
Representatives sustained the veto 86-47, with 90 needed to override, but they immediately took another vote that leaves it available for future action.
Senators already voted to override the veto.
Last week, just nine House members opposed the bill that Pawlenty quickly vetoed.
