Rep. Hays Calls Unnecessary Veto Override Vote on SB 570 "Nonsense"

This week in Springfield the House and Senate were in session for the conclusion of the fall veto session. One bill that came up for an override vote in the House was SB 570, which sets eligibility threshold levels for the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). During the floor debate, State Representative Chad Hays (R-Catlin) called the veto override attempt "nonsense," because an bipartisan compromise was agreed to over the weekend, making the bill unnecessary.

The veto override vote failed. You can listen to Rep. Hays' floor comments at the link above.
