Teachers got the blame, as Bevin said some single parents can not afford childcare and can not afford to take time off work to watch their children. Bevin contends the budget is imbalanced and over estimates revenues in explaining his vetoes.
The House and Senate each voted in two steps to override Governor Matt Bevin's vetoes of the tax increase and the overall budget.

Rep. Jeff Hoover, a Republican from Jamestown, criticized the governor for never calling a special legislative session on tax reform a year ago, despite promising to do so.
"What this tax bill really does is raise $436 million in taxes from the people who can least afford to pay more", he said. That the vetoes were desired by them to endure, which would've pressured the Senate to call a special session of the State Legislature to pass a new funding. But 5-7 House Republicans united by Senate Republicans, voted to override.
In rejecting the increase, Bevin said it would not generate enough money to cover new state spending.
Between both chambers the vote fell mostly along party lines, with no Democrats supporting the bill and only 16 Republicans opposing. The vote was 66-28 in the House and 26-12 in the Senate. In all, 88 of the 90 Republicans in the General Assembly voted against the Republican governor on the budget. This bill is a tax shift. "You need both of those to have one of them because you need the funding to able to provide the appropriations as well". Minority Floor Leader Ray Jones offered this on the tax measure.
