What's up with legislation on the Governor's Desk?

from Hawaii Family Forum, May 31, 2024

The two bills below are still awaiting action by Governor Green.  The bills were sent to his desk AFTER April 15th, so if the Governor signs the bill by July 10, 2024 (the 45th day after adjournment sine die), the bill becomes law and is given an act number. If the Governor neither signs nor vetoes the bill by July 10, 2024 (the 45th day after adjournment sine die), the bill becomes law without the Governor's signature and is given an act number. If the Governor intends to veto the bill, the Governor must inform the Legislature by June 25, 2024 (the 35th day after adjournment sine die) and deliver the veto by July 10, 2024 (the 45th day after adjournment sine die). If the bill is vetoed, it will not become law unless the Legislature successfully overrides the veto in special session by a 2/3 vote in each chamber.The Legislature must convene in special session at or before noon on July 10, 2024, to override the Governor's veto.
