A House panel on Tuesday proposed $1 billion in emergency disaster relief money to ensure that aid to tornado and flood victims in the South and Midwest doesn't run dry.
"The numbers don't lie," Mr. Aderholt said after taking the call.
The bill's sponsor, Rep. Robert B. Aderholt, an Alabama Republican, said those who have raised objections are "misunderstanding" what the bill would have done, and some Republicans are arguing that Mr. Obama's veto -- technically a "pocket veto" in which he simply refuses to sign the measure -- may not even be legal under the standards Democrats applied to President George W. Bush in 2007.
