LINCOLN — The governor has vetoed a bill that sought federal funding for services to help allow elderly Nebraskans to remain in their homes, calling the approach another type of Medicaid expansion.

State Sen. Kate Bolz of Lincoln, who sponsored the legislation that passed 32-11 on final reading, filed a motion Monday to override Gov. Dave Heineman’s veto. Bolz said she felt confident that her motion would receive the 30 votes needed to overcome the veto.
