day 20 of 30: five bills signed

Governor Easley signed five bills into law on Thursday, August 7, 2008, day 20 of 30 days for gubernatorial action.  This leaves 40 bills pending on the Governor’s desk.

The new laws are:

Under Article II, Section 22 of the Constitution, the Governor has 30 days after adjournment to act on all pending bills, with July 19 being day one.   The 30-day period concludes at midnight, Sunday, August 17, 2008.  Any bills not acted on by the deadline become law on Monday, August 18, 2008. Bills sent to the Governor prior to adjournment where the 10-day limit had not run out at adjournment have a new 30-day clock.

2008 laws enacted are listed here in order of becoming law, and here in order of bill number.  These links are normally updated within a few business hours of action being taken.
