Coal vote 10 votes short of veto-proof House margin

David Klepper:

Sebelius, a Democrat, has promised to veto the measure.The vote is significant in that it’s 10 less than the 84 votes needed to override a veto.

Supporters of the project say they’ll use the Legislature’s three week spring break (likely starting tonight) to win over more votes ahead of a veto override attempt.

It appears supporters are actually losing votes, however. When the House originally passed the legislation in February, the vote was 79-44.
