How state representatives voted on abortion veto override

From Associated Press

Here is the 86-35 vote Monday by which the Kansas House overrode Gov. Mark Parkinson’s veto of a bill rewriting state laws on late-term abortions.

A two-thirds majority, or 84 votes, was required. A “yes” vote was to override the vote. A “no” vote was to sustain the veto. Of the 76 Republicans, 68 voted “yes” and 8 voted “no.” Of the 49 Democrats, 18 voted “yes,” 27 voted “no” and 4 did not vote.
