More Vetos From Schweitzer
Gov. Brian Schweitzer has struck down a proposal to require parental notification of some teen abortions.
The governor issued that and other vetoes Thursday afternoon, but also went along with several legislative proposals.
The governor rejected the Legislature’s proposal to require parental notification before minors less than 16 years of age can get an abortion. The issue is not dead, though, since Republican-led Legislature also put the question on the 2012 ballot for voters to consider.
One bill he will allow to become law has been criticized as unfairly tilting the state’s main environmental law in favor of industry. But Schweitzer also vetoed another pro-industry measure that undermined a voter-approved ban on cyanide gold mining.
