Budget measures made up most of Brewer’s vetoes

Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed entirely or partially one out of every 10 bills that reached her desk, but a multi-bill budget package accounted for most of those vetoes.

Brewer’s office has released final figures on what she did by Monday’s deadline with the 213 bills she received from the regular legislative session that ended on July 1.

In all, budget bills accounted for 18 of the 24 bills that Brewer vetoed all or in part. She signed two appropriations bills while using her line-item veto authority to cut out parts of them. She vetoed 22 others entirely.

Brewer signed 190 bills into law and allowed one more to take effect without her signature.
