Governor Henry Vetos General Appropriations Bill

Earlier this afternoon, Governor Henry held a press conference where he announced that he had signed the supplemental appropriations for education and corrections, but would veto nearly $7B in general appropriations funds. Standing behind him were the Democrats from the House of Representatives who will work to sustain his veto.

Governor Henry said that it was necessary for all parties to be involved in the budget making process. We will continue to work with the Governor and the members of both parties in the House and Senate to adequately fund education.
