The Legislature’s role is to pass bills. A bill moves through the 1st, 2nd and 3rd reading in each chamber-the House and the Senate. If a bill makes it through the two chambers, it’s sent to the Governor. The Governor has 10 days to sign a bill into law, or become law without his signature, or he can decide to veto a bill. After the annual legislative session is over, the Governor has 30 days to decide to sign a bill, let it become law without his signature or veto a bill.
The 2019 legislative session ended on May 3. The Governor has been signing bills into law since March. However, he is having signing ceremonies and signing bills into law every day since the legislative session ended. Will he veto bills this year? We don’t know yet!
I passed 14 bills out of the legislature this year, so am hoping for 14 bills signed by the Governor!
