Veto Override fails on Right to Work Green for RTW - Red against RTW
2/3 majority (109) required to override veto
From Ryan Johnson, President of the Missouri Alliance for Freedom:
On September 16, 2015 the Missouri General Assembly had a historic opportunity to help Missourians of all walks of life. With veto proof majorities the Missouri Legislature could have enacted worker freedom in spite of Governor Nixon’s veto. The Republican led House of Representatives failed to override the veto because of 19 Republicans (20 if you count former democrat Linda Black) who stood with liberal-progressive Governor Nixon and voted NO. Hillary Clinton immediately praised the defeat of right-to-work in Missouri. Now begins the process of holding the 20 NOES accountable for standing with Hillary Clinton and Jay Nixon. Missourians from all backgrounds deserve more job opportunities, higher wages and salaries, and more prosperity. We deserve worker freedom.
Below are the 20 Republican representatives that sided with Governor Jay Nixon and Hillary Clinton:
From Mary Hill:
The new Yes voters are Robert.Cornejo@house.mo.gov, Courtney@Curtis@house.mo.gov, Jim.Neely@house.mo.gov, Randy.Pietzman@house.mo.gov and Dan Shaul@house.mo.gov (Courtney Allen Curtis is a democrat). These folks deserve a lot of credit for this vote, they recieved huge pressure to stay a No but they voted YES. Thank you to James Pietzman, Dan Shaul, Jim Neely, Robert Cornejo and Courtney Allen Curtis!
"The most important thing was that half this House Gallery (that is in this pic) was packed with folks from our side on Right to Work. (There were many more still milling around the Capitol that couldn't make it into the Gallery.) That really is something to have that many there on a Wednesday morning?!!" ~Mary Hill
To Mary Hill: Thank you for your tenacity and tireless perseverance in this battle!! You've accomplished huge steps forward. Stand proud!
