Governor Abercrombie has notified state lawmakers that he intends to veto 10 bills passed in the 2014 session.
Among the potential vetoes a bill that would transfer harbor patrol from the department of transportation, to the department of public safety.
The governor has until July 8 to sign bills into law, but he has to give lawmakers advance warning so they can take action if they want to override a veto.
