Clearing the desk

Posted June 24, 2011

Perdue's office released this list late today of the 117 bills the governor signed or vetoed Thursday and Friday.

Two of the 117 were vetoes: H351 Voter ID and S33 Medical Liability Reform.

The other 115 were signed into law, including H49 Laura's Law, H542 Tort Reform, H709 Workers' Comp Reform, H427 "Run and You're Done," H36 E-Verify, H641 Ex-Felon Rights Relief, and S129 Gold as Official State Mineral.

The list doesn't include bills Perdue allowed to become law without her signature. At the moment, we know of three: SB 159 Convey Blue Ridge Correctional Facility to Mayland Community College, HB 342 High School Accreditation (the anti-AdvancEd bill), and HB 678 Pilot Release of Inmates to Adult Care Homes.

What we're watching:

Still on the bubble: H854 Abortion Restrictions, S110 Terminal Groins, H845 Annexation Reform, S781 Regulatory Reform Act, and S709 Drilling/Fracking, along with scores of other bills. 

If Perdue's going to veto the abortion restriction bill (as is widely expected), she'll have to do it by Monday night. The final deadline for many of the other remaining bills is Thursday night, June 30th.

Check back - we'll be updating here over the weekend.
