The House has rejected Governor Mark Sanford's veto of $21.3 million for giving health insurance some 85,000 children. The House also voted to override 51 of the governor's other vetoes. They included bills for $545,000 for a tourism program at the College of Charleston, $257,317 for a H.L. Hunley project.
The governor called the votes "financially reckless," he said his $72 million in vetoes should go to fund school busses and prisons.
The Senate must also approve the overrides, and will vote on them today.
