In an unexpected morning vote Wednesday, Republicans in the North Carolina House of Representatives pushed through an override of Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget.

Cooper vetoed the budget passed by the General Assembly at the end of June, citing its lack of Medicaid expansion, among other things.

The state senate will still need to concur with the house in order for the override to take effect, but the Associated Press reported Tuesday morning Republicans only need one Democrat to join them in order for that to happen.
