Home / Health Care / GAMC showdown: Can the House muster enough votes to override the governor?
At first blush, it would seem that Democrats should have little difficulty overriding Gov. Tim Pawlenty's veto of General Assistance Medical Care legislation. The bill passed both legislative chambers, after all, by overwhelming margins. The House backed the revamped health-care program -- which provides coverage to poor, single adults -- by a 125-9 margin. The Senate then ratified the decision by a 47-16 margin.
