Fate of Missouri tax cut rests in House after Senate votes to override Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto

The Missouri Senate voted 23-8 along party lines Monday to override Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a proposed $620 million income tax cut. The bill was debated, but not voted on, in the House, where Republicans hold 108 seats — one shy of the number needed to override. Democratic Rep. Keith English of St. Louis County says he plans to vote to override the veto.
