McAuliffe Vetoes Part of Va. Budget Proposal

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe vetoed a part of the $96 billion two-year budget that lawmakers passed last week.   

The purpose of the budget was to ensure that McAuliffe could nto expand Medicaid without legislative approval. McAuliffe, a Democrat, supports Medicaid expansion.

This months-long Medicaid expansion battle has been leading to a potential government shutdown if it wasn't resolved by July 1st, but after a Democratic state senator resigned, Republicans gained control of the chambers and General Assembly.

The General Assembly can vote to override McAuliffe's line-item veto, but the governor said he plans to look for other ways to expand Medicaid.
