The Vermont Senate has overridden Governor Scott’s veto of a bill that would increase the state's minimum wage over the next two years.
The senate voted 24 to 6 in favor of the veto override on Thursday.
It's unclear when the house will vote on the bill.
The original minimum wage bill did not pass the house with the two-thirds margin that would be needed to override the governor's veto.
Proponents say the increase will benefit 40,000 low-income families.
