The New Mexico House of Representatives did not generate enough votes to override Gov. Susana Martinez's veto on teacher's sick leave.

Martinez vetoed the bill that would have given three additional sick days without penalties on teacher's performance evaluations. After the governor issued her veto, the state Senate voted to override it by a 34-7 vote.

However, the House failed to get the required 2/3 of the vote -- or 47 affirmative votes -- in order to override the veto. Representatives voted 36-31 against the override; three lawmakers in the House did not vote. It means Martinez's veto remains intact.
