Tester responds to Senate override of Bush’s water projects veto

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Montana Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement after the U.S. Senate overrode President Bush's veto of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA).  With a vote of 79-14 this is the first veto override of Bush's Presidency:

"Anyone in Montana will tell you how important water projects are for our state.  I can't imagine why, after seven years of drunken sailor spending, the President would stand in the way of repairing crumbling bridges and delivering a lifeline as simple as water to rural America.  I'm proud to see that we were able to override this irresponsible veto and these good projects will be saved."
