Governor Signs 226 Bills, “Continuing a Year of Progress”

After reviewing 245 measures passed by the 2014 Hawaii State Legislature, Gov. Neil Abercrombie today notified legislators of his decision to veto seven bills and to allow six bills to become law without his signature.

“I am pleased to have signed 226 bills into law, continuing a year of progress that included historic legislation to raise the state’s minimum wage (Act 82) and protect hundreds of acres of land on Oahu’s North Shore from development (Act 81),” Gov. Abercrombie said. “While fewer bills reached my desk this year compared to years past, laws generated this session will have a positive impact on Hawaii and its people.”
