In a day of defeats for Gov. Holden, his veto of a controversial medical malpractice reform bill stood up to an override vote. Aidian Holder has that story.
Hundreds of doctors descended on the state Capitol in hopes of persuading the state Senate to override Gov. Holden's veto of the controversial tort reform bill.
They made a splash, noisily rallying in the Capitol foyer, packing the Senate gallery and swarming legislators' offices to lobby their case. But the override fell short of the needed 23 votes.
Jeffrey Thomason is a neurosurgeon from St. Louis. He says tort reform is a patient care issue.
Opponents of the bill say it would strip people of their rights when injured . Thomason promises he'll be back to lobby again next year.
