Veto! What’s your thoughts on these?

rong> , I’d like to ask your thoughts on the Governor’s Budget Vetos which she shared earlier today.

Fiscal Year 2016-2017 General Appropriations Act

Fiscal Year 2016-2017 Capital Reserve Fund

If you’ve never seen a veto message before, those links show you exactly what each House and Senate member receives.

I usually sustain several vetoes; but not before hearing from you and your rationale for why that particular veto should be overridden or sustained.

The General Assembly will return next Wednesday, June 16th, to vote on these. We actually take a little longer than we used to before I was elected. Partly due to roll call voting; also due to more deliberation from the floor instead of the usual “override them all” mentality that was around for many years.

If you see something you feel strongly about (for or against), please let me know! You can always comment here in the comment section or click “Contact” up top on the website to send me an email.

For those outside the Richland, Lexington area, be sure you let your Representative or Senator know your thoughts!
