TRENTON - Plans to override Gov. Chris Christie's (R-N.J.) veto of a women's health spending bill came up short today.

Neither Democrats nor Republicans were able to reach across the aisle regarding the spending bill. When Monday's veto override came up for a vote, everyone voted along party lines.

Four state Senate Republicans would have had to support an override to reach the required 27 votes.

The bill is a $7.5 million bill to fund family planning clinics, such as those run by Planned Parenthood.
