The Missouri General Assembly overrode one of Gov. Jay Nixon’s vetoes in a day-long legislative session Wednesday. The Republican-controlled body took the initiative to override Nixon’s veto of Senate Bill 749. The measure provided insurance companies a way to opt out of providing contraception on religious and/or moral grounds. It was just the eighth override of a Missouri governor’s veto since 1855. All eight of those happened from 1976 to the present.
