Ind. Gov't. - List of enrolled acts received by Gov. Holcomb

According to a news release from the Gov.'s office late this afternoon, the Governor received 44 bills today, and signed them all. From the release:

Governor Holcomb signed 44 bills today. Here are some quick facts about the final passage votes for these bills in both chambers:

· Unanimous – 27
· One vote against – 4
· Two votes against – 2
· Three votes against – 1
· Four votes against -2
· Five votes against – 1
· More than five votes against - 7

The governor offered the following statement regarding his bill signings today and progress this legislative session:

“More than half of the bills I signed today earned unanimous support by our state lawmakers. I am proud of the Hoosier spirit of collaboration and civility we’ve seen so far—as well as our combined focus on the most important issues facing our state.”
Here is Gov. Holcomb's "Bill Watch" page for 2017. Notice that in addition to the bills received today, the Gov. received a number of bills earlier this month, another group in late March, and two in February.

All the bills the Governor has received thus far this session have been signed into law by the Governor, none are shown as having been received but still awaiting his action, and none have been vetoed.

Note that the bill numbers on the "Bill Watch" page are live links to each bill's page on the General Assembly's site.

Remember that it may take a number of days after a bill has been passed by the General Assembly for it to be processed and delivered to the Governor's office.
