I still have been unable to find anywhere in the official record of what took place during last week's Missouri House of Representatives session, a detailing of the unsuccessful vote to override Governor Matt Blunt's veto of $227,000 worth of funding for Alzheimer's research.
According to printed reports. Democrats who were trying to override the veto managed to corral 22 Republicans into voting with them, but I have found no article, and nothing in the record, saying how each legislator voted.
It appears many of them do not want it on record that they opposed the restoration of funding for Alzheimer's research. It seems odd that an official record which includes the word-for-word reprint of the prayer that opens each session, does not include a vote which holds such importance for many Missourians.
Again, if I have simply overlooked the vote record, please let me know. If anyone has information about it other than what has been printed, leave a comment, or send an e-mail to email@example.com
