Abercrombie Sends Notice to Veto 10 Bills
By News Release @ 5:25 AM :: 3271 Views :: Hawaii State Government


News Release from Office of the Governor June 23, 2014

HONOLULU – After reviewing 245 measures passed by the 2014 Hawaii State Legislature, Gov. Neil Abercrombie today notified legislators of his intent to veto 10 bills, in addition to the notification on June 9 of his intent to line-item veto House Bill 1700 (Relating to the State Budget).

“I commend legislators for passing many important and relevant measures this session that will benefit Hawaii’s residents, like higher minimum wage and land preservation,” Gov. Abercrombie said. “However, there are a few bills I am considering vetoing because of input I have received from concerned individuals. Other bills, despite their good intentions, will not work as they are written.”

Because the State of Hawaii Constitution requires the governor to provide 10 working days’ notice for any measures that he may veto by July 8, 2014, the following measures on his intent-to-veto notice are still under consideration and further review:

•    House Bill 1288 (Relating to Order of Succession)

•    House Bill 2163 (Relating to Parental Parity)

•    House Bill 2427 (Relating to the Repeal of Non-General Funds)

•    Senate Bill 60 (Relating to Victims of Crimes)

•    Senate Bill 2431 (Relating to the Hawaii Tourism Authority)

•    Senate Bill 2483 (Relating to Condominium Associations)

•    Senate Bill 2589 (Relating to Law Enforcement)

•    Senate Bill 2682 (Relating to Financial Disclosure Statements)

•    Senate Bill 2821 (Relating to Insurance)

•    Senate Bill 2874 (Relating to the Board of Land and Natural Resources)

Most of these bills are potentially objectionable because of concerns raised by state department or agencies, reflected in testimonies provided during the hearing process. The purpose of the notice is to allow sufficient time for Gov. Abercrombie to give additional consideration, have further discussions and inquiries, and conduct deeper analysis before final decisions are made.

The governor also outlined his plan to line-item veto the budget bill (House Bill 1700) in order to address an inconsistency of approximately $444 million between it and the bond authorization bill (House Bill 1712) passed by legislators that is preventing him from signing both into law.

To date, Gov. Abercrombie has signed 121 measures into law. He continues to review legislative bills that he must either veto or sign by July 8, 2014, or allow them to become law without his signature.
