With the legislature wrapping up this week, we have decided to make the content a little bit shorter, but still give you a special cat video at the end.
- The bulk of the legislature’s work this week has been focused on constitutional amendments and veto overrides.
- For the 2017-2018 session, Governor Cooper has vetoed a total of 23 bills, with 10 of those coming in 2018.
- The proposed adjournment resolution has the legislature returning following the November elections on November 27. The resolution places no restrictions on the legislation which can be presented, so there is an opportunity for many bills to receive additional discussion then. Stay tuned!
INSIDE BASEBALL—GLOSSARY OF TERMS
Veto override: The procedural action by which the General Assembly rejects the veto of a piece of legislation by the Governor, leading to the legislation’s passage. A vote to override a Governor’s must be approved by three-fifths of the members present and voting in each chamber in order to pass (for a full chamber that is 72 in the House and 30 in the Senate).
In the coming weeks, we will release a complete wrap-up of the 2017-2018 legislative session. This will appear in Monday’s REALTOR® Rundown, as well as in future editions of the REALTOR® Advocate.
A CAT VIDEO
Since we started with a cat video, we thought we would end this series with a special one.
