13 Bills Vetoed

It’s the Governor’s veto deadline (July 11), and he has chosen to veto 13 bills, allowing two others on his intent-to-veto list to become law without his signature. Here’s a link to his press release, presenting rationale for his vetoes:

All the bills that the Governor has in his possession and has neither signed nor vetoed become law today without his signature. The dates the laws take effect are found in the last section of each of the enacted bills.

A total of 217 bills from the 2017 Regular Legislative Session became law — about 7% of the total bills introduced.
