  • Cherokee chief vetoes clinic measure

    Tahlequah, Oklahoma (AP)

    Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chad Smith vetoed legislation passed by the Tribal Council that would have created four new health clinics.

    In his veto message Sept. 23, Smith said he supports the clinics but calls the legislation political showmanship that wasn’t based on sound judgment and limits the tribe’s options in improving health care.
