Re: SB 2065 - Conference Committee Report Filed - PASSED

The Governor has the bill, here is what is next:

Governor’s Action
Except in the case of a bill sent to the governor within 10 days of final adjournment, on receiving a bill, the governor has 10 days in which to sign the bill, veto it, or allow it to become law without a signature. If the governor elects to veto the bill and the legislature is still in session, the bill is returned to the chamber in which it originated with an explanation of the governor’s objections. A two-thirds majority in each chamber is required to override the veto. If the governor neither vetoes nor signs the bill within the allotted time, the bill becomes law. If a bill is sent to the governor within 10 days of final adjournment, the governor has until 20 days after final adjournment to sign the bill, veto it, or allow it to become law without a signature.
The same steps and deadlines are applicable to concurrent resolutions.

Thank you Charles for the information.
Thank goodness! I have been looking this morning for evidence that it was signed but could not find it.
Thanks again!

Then I assume the governor has no reason to veto it? I hate making assumptions! Remember: "it ain't over 'til the fat lady sings!" Sings or signs, as the case may be! "rlol"
Correct.
I hope it was signed, maybe just delayed in posting to the TLO website.
It has to be signed to go to the Executive.
