Governor's Action-No Signature Required

#1

Interesting nugget of information...

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.

There have been 20 bills enacted into law that didn't get the Governor's signature(so far), 14 of which dealt with Water Control Districts, Hospital Districts, etc.

I hope our Governor signs the 5 gun bills waiting for signature that passed this session, instead of allowing them to become law, without signature. :???:

I think the drop dead date for his signature on them is only 10 or 11 days away, max.

Since the legislature adjourned on June 1st, the sign-off deadline date of the bills will be Sunday June 21'st (Father's Day) unless the Governor signs them prior to that date.

Happy Father's day! :cheers2:
