Governor Tomblin Vetoes HB2568, Citing Constitutional Concerns

3/3/2015

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (March 3, 2015) – Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today vetoed House Bill 2568, citing constitutional concerns:
 
“As reflected in my voting record during my time in the Legislature, I believe there is no greater gift of love than the gift of life. As governor, I must take into consideration a number of factors when reviewing legislation, including its constitutionality. At the start of the regular session, I urged members of the Legislature to consider a compromise that would help us establish legislation that would pass constitutional muster. Having received a substantially similar bill to the one vetoed last year on constitutional grounds, I must veto House Bill 2568.”
