July Marks Final Month for Action on Measures Passed by General Assembly

JEFFERSON CITY - July 14 was the final day the governor could act on legislation delivered to him by members of the Senate and House of Representatives. If no action was taken on legislation, by either receiving his signature or a veto, then the legislation is enacted into law on its effective date.

More than 130 measures received the governor’s written approval (four will take effect without receiving gubernatorial action), and 15 received his veto, including one line-item veto in House Bill 10 and a measure -later overridden by the General Assembly -changing the composition of congressional districts based on the 2010 census. The bills noted in this column are listed according to the date the legislation received the governor’s approval.
