Current Bill Summary

HCS/SB 749 - Under current law, a bill vetoed by the Governor becomes effective immediately if the General Assembly votes to over-ride the veto. Similarly, due to a 1926 decision of the Missouri Supreme Court, initiative petitions become effective on the date approved by the voters. This act provides that vetoed bills become effective 30 days after the General Assembly votes to over-ride. Issues submitted to the voters, whether by the General Assembly or by initiative petition, must contain an effective date, and, after January 1, 2003, must consist of pages of a uniform size.

This act is similar to SB 148 (2001).
