June 23, 1947:
The Republican Congress' override of President Truman's veto of the anti-union Taft-Hartley Act is complete. The Senate vote today is 68-25, which followed by three days the House vote of 331-83.
The act, named for Sen. Robert Taft (R-OH) and Rep. Fred Hartley (R-NJ), was passed in the wake of public outrage over widespread labor strikes following World War II.
Truman will use the act to his benefit as part of his surprise re-election victory in 1948.
