Louisiana House Backs Jindal On Cigarette Tax, Beats Veto Override
Written by 

House of Representatives failed on Thursday to override Governor Bobby Jindal’s veto of a smoking tax extension.

 The vote came after impassioned pleas by supporters of the four-cent extension.

The 58-44 vote count fell short of required 70 votes  to override the governor's veto. 

Proponents of the tax extension emotionally supported the override, a number of House members trying to hold back from crying.

Speaker Jim Tucker voted to override the Governor and urged the House members to follow.
