The Missouri House acted quickly Tuesday to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of a tax-cut bill that is estimated to cut the state's revenue by about $620 million a year when fully implemented.
The House obtained the exact number of votes needed — 109 — with the help of one Democrat, Rep. Keith English of Florissant. He joined all of the chamber's 108 Republicans.
The House joined the Senate, which voted 23-8 on Monday to override the governor's veto, which he issued last week.
