HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana’s Democratic governor has vetoed more bills from this year’s Republican-controlled Legislature than he had at this point after the 2013 session.
Gov. Steve Bullock had shot down 34 bills by the end of the day Wednesday. He still as at least 150 more bills to consider.
All but two of the vetoes were issued on bills sponsored by Republicans.
Bullock has issued a second denial to some proposals he also vetoed in 2013, including bills to deregulate guns in various ways and cut income taxes.
Lawmakers passed three anti-abortion measures this year, a subject that did not survive the 2013 Legislature. Bullock has vetoed two of the Republican measures and is expected to reject the third.
