WC lawmakers shoot down most of Astorino's budget vetoes

The Westchester County Board of Legislators today voted to override nearly all of County Executive Rob Astorino's (R-Westchester) 247 line-item budget vetoes.

The board did not even consider 29 of his vetoes and sustained only three others.

Most of the votes to thwart Astorino's vetoes were along party lines, but Republicans did join Democrats to override some items.
