Past vetoes

I had a couple of calls today asking for a list of past vetoes, which our legislative library has helpfully kept. North Carolina was the last state to give the Governor a veto, the General Assembly approved a constitutional amendment and implementing statute in the 1995 session, voters approved it in 1996, and it became effective in 1997. Delaware had been the most previous state to have no veto, they granted their Governor a veto in the early 1900s.

 Under the Dome has helpfully catalogued the past vetoes:

Making legislative appointments, changing mortgage lending laws, changing teacher certification, compensating billboard owners, changing teacher certifications, selling an airport site to Currituck County for a dollar and granting access to state buildings to employees associations.
