- SB 118 passed the Senate 27-9 and the House 73-29. It would allow those 21 and older to carry a concealed weapon without a permit.
- SB 156 passed 29-6 in the Senate and 78-17 in the House. This measure would prevent transgender females from competing against cisgender female in athletic events.
- HB 514 passed 37-0 in the Senate and in the House 88-13. This Constitutional Amendment would gradually boost state aid for roads and bridges by $300 million per year, potentially putting the state in a precarious fiscal position in years to come. If the Act is not vetoed, it will be on the ballot statewide in October of this year.
While these three bills are expected to be at the center of any veto session this year, legislators could override any of the vetoed bills. To see a full list of bills the Governor vetoed this year, click here.
