Detroit Free Press: House Overrides Veto

With high-profile projects for Michigan and the Great Lakes at stake Tuesday, a bipartisan coalition in the House easily overrode President George W. Bush's veto of a bill authorizing hundreds of water-related projects nationwide. 


The Senate is expected to follow suit this week. Both chambers passed the initial bill with more than the two-thirds majority needed to -- for the first time in Bush's presidency -- override his veto. 


The House voted 361-54 for the override, with all 15 Michigan members, including nine Republicans breaking with Bush on the issue, voting yes.
