Pence readies 1st vetoes as Indiana governorMay 8, 2013
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is ready to veto his first measures since taking office in January.
The Republican governor said he would announce which bills he is opposing Wednesday.
Pence declined to say Tuesday which bills he is vetoing. But he reiterated concerns with a measure shifting power from the Democratic-controlled Indianapolis City-County Council to Republican Mayor Greg Ballard. He also expressed concerns with a plan for a $100 million loan to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for improvements.
Governor’s vetoes don’t hold as much weight in Indiana as they do in other states. A simple majority is needed in both the House and Senate to override a veto.
Lawmakers could return to the Statehouse on June 12 to consider any vetoes.
