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.

These vetoes are in addition to the line-item veto House Bill 1700 (Relating to the State Budget).

Legislative bills may be vetoed or signed into law by July 8, 2014, or they will become law without his signature.
