The state senate has overridden Governor Nixon’s veto of a tax cut bill that sponsors say will put more money in taxpayer’s pockets, leading to more economic growth. Governor Nixon says the wording of the bill endangers almost two-thirds of the state’s general revenue tax collections and takes money away from education.

The override was a stright party-line vote, 23 Republicans, 8 Democrats.

The House is debating the override now.
