Veto of Funds to Combat the Adelgid

Governor Cellucci vetoed the supplemental budget items (described in the next item) that would have provided money to combat the Adelgid and repair Echo Bridge. We regret to have to bring you this sad news, and are encouraging efforts to override the veto. When the vote to override will be taken is not yet known. We will keep you informed. In the interim we urge you to contact your state legislators and encourage them to vote in favor of these budget items.
