Getting the bill to the Governor

The bill just passed the Senate Judiciary committee 3-1. “Arlin” from Senator Scott’s office explained to me that the next step is the Fiscal committee who meets weekly through August 31. The Senate must approve and reconcile the legislation by September 14 for this fiscal year, then the Governor has 30 days (until October 14 in this case) to exercise his power to veto.

If the Governor signs it or does nothing the bill will become law January 1, 2008.
