Missouri lawmakers set to attempt to overturn Nixon’s vetoes

( KTRS ) Missouri lawmakers are to meet Wednesday to consider enacting more than a dozen bills vetoed by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.

Measures include a contentious right-to-work bill and legislation to cut unemployment benefits.
Right to work doesn’t appear to have enough Republican supporters in the House to pass with the needed two-thirds majority vote. But the GOP-led Legislature looks set to overturn the governor’s vetoes on several other measures.

Those range from blocking scholarships for certain immigrants to a tax exemption for some large-scale laundries to a proposed ban on cities raising the local minimum wage.

Lawmakers need at least 109 votes in the House and 23 in the Senate to override Nixon.
