Rell's Veto Pen Active

Gov. Rell has vetoed several bills recently, including:

  • A bill that would have built on a 2007 law making it more difficult for health insurers to rescind individual policies
  • A ban on placing an ash landfill in Franklin
  • A bill forbidding the location of a garbage-fueled power plant in a Waterbury neighborhood (updated for accuracy)
  • A bill requiring family magistrates to be approved by the legislature, which was a response to a scandal over a pick of the governor’s who had little experience

    The veto would not locate a trash burner in Waterbury. It will allow the developers to proceed with a Siting Council application to place a food waste digester on and old industrial property in the South End. There is no combustion involved.

    Senate Bill 3 would have barred the Siting Council from permitting it in Waterbury.

  2. You’re right, of course. Updated.

    What happened to the Senate Vacancy bill?

    And is it true that Don Williams decided against trying to override a Rell veto?

    A “veto-proof” majority is worthless without leadership; and let’s face it that and morality are currently areas of absolute bankruptcy in Hartford Democratic leadership.

    A bill forbidding the location of a garbage-fueled power plant in a Waterbury neighborhood (updated for accuracy)

    Both of those items were part of one bill Senate Bill 3. There was one Veto for those items, not 2.

    According to the CGA website, it was referred to the Sec. of State’s office on Monday. I’m assuming that this is a normal procedure before it lands on the Gov’s desk.

    Where it will surely get vetoed.

    Hard.

    You are correct, that is the normal procedure
