Governor Sends Notice of Intent to Veto Bills
Today marked the 35th day after adjournment and the deadline for the Governor to give notice to the Legislature of his intent to veto any measures.
Any bill for which notice is not given will become law, either by the Governor’s signature within the next ten days or by effect of law on the 45th Day. The Governor’s notification of intent to veto does not necessarily mean that a bill will be vetoed. The Governor can still change his mind and sign a bill for which he gave notice, or simply allow it to become law without his signature.
This year, July 10, 2012 marks the 45th Day after adjournment and is the last day for the Governor to veto bills from his intent to veto list.
