Legislative Initiative 7-1, vom Parlament mit Dreiviertelsmehrheit in jedem Haus
beschlossen; daher ist nur eine einfache Mehrheit aller abgegebenen Stimmen nötig
(Kapitel XVIII, Art. 3 und 5 der Verfassung).
Kapitel II Art. 7:
"Action on Legislation by the Governor
a) Every bill enacted shall be signed by the presiding officer of the house in
which the bill originated and transmitted to the governor. If the governor signs
the bill, it shall become law. If the governor vetoes the bill, it shall be
returned to the presiding officer of each house of the legislature with a statement
of the reasons for the veto. The governor may veto an item, section, or part in an
appropriation bill and sign the remainder of the bill; provided that the governor
may not veto an item, section, or part governing the manner in which an
appropriation may be expended if any appropriation affected by the item, section,
or part is approved.
b) The governor shall have twenty days in which to consider appropriation bills
and forty days in which to consider other bills. If the governor fails either to
sign or veto a bill within the applicable period, it shall become law.
c) A bill or an item, section, or part of a bill vetoed by the governor may be
reconsidered by the legislature. The legislature shall have sixty (60) days from
the receipt of the governor's veto message in the house or origin of the vetoed
bill, item, section or part of a bill to reconsider the vetoed legislation. If
two-thirds of the members in each house vote upon reconsideration to pass the
bill, item, section, or part, it shall become law.
d) Any appropriation bill, or any bill affecting spending authority, government
financial management, or organization of the government, enacted in the period
between a regular general election and the second Monday of January of the following
year shall be void unless enacted by the affirmative vote of three-fourths of the
members of each house of the legislature."
