As of noon today, July 23, day 13 of 30 for the Governor to act on bills, she had signed 71 of the 109 (65%)  that were on her desk at the end of the session.

This compares with 27 of the 113 bills (24%) on Governor Easley’s desk that had been acted on by day 13 after the 2008 short session.

Under Article II, Section 22 of the Constitution, the Governor has 30 days after adjournment to act on all pending bills, with July 11 being day one.   The 30-day period concludes at midnight, Monday, August 9, 2010.  Any bills not acted on by the deadline become law on Tuesday, August 10, 2010. 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.

2010 laws enacted are listed here in order of becoming law, and here in order of bill number.  These links are normally updated within a business day of action being taken.
