Va. House Rejects Governor’s Veto of Measure That Could Delay Medicaid Expansion
On Monday, Virginia's Republican-controlled House of Delegates rejected Gov. Terry McAuliffe's (D) veto of a provision in the newly enacted state budget that was designed to block him from taking executive action to expand Medicaid access to as many as 400,000 low-income residents. During a legislative veto session, House Speaker William Howell (R) ruled that McAuliffe's veto of the amendment exceeded the governor's authority.
