NC Gov. McCrory defiant after vetoes overridden

Posted: Updated:

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory says he won't carry out one bill the legislature enacted despite his veto until the program is better funded.

McCrory said Wednesday he will order officials to not take any action to implement drug-testing for welfare recipients until lawmakers provide enough money for the program. The Senate overrode McCrory's veto of the bill earlier Wednesday.

The Senate also overrode McCrory's veto of a bill creating a wider exemption for employers to calculate whether they must participate in the E-Verify program. McCrory says he will look hard at that bill to ensure U.S. immigration laws are followed.

The governor also announced Wednesday he had found $10 million to make sure teachers currently getting master's degrees will get higher pay.
