Republicans who switched from a yes vote on Sunday to a no for override: Reps. John Cavaletto, R-Salem; C.D. Davidsmeyer, R-Jacksonville; Charles Meier, R-Okawville; and David Reis, R-Willow Hill; Rep. Robert Pritchard, R-Sycamore, voted to approve the measure on Sunday, but was absent for the override.
