On the heels of his pledge to veto the budget that funds the Departments of Health and Mental Health, Governor Bob Holden has announced he will veto the bill that funds higher education. Calling the cuts a tax increase on the students and working families of Missouri, Holden said cuts to education would be the wrong way to go. Lawmakers will be called into special session to deal with the budget bill vetoes. Legislative leaders have already said that any budget bill vetoed by the Governor will be returned to him – unchanged. Further vetoes are expected later this week.
