Monday is the last day for Governor Kaine to make changes to several bills passed by the General Assembly
The Governor amended bills dealing with issues such as smoking in restaurants and requiring sixth-grade girls to get HPV vaccines. He vetoed five different bills that would expand the death penalty.
These changes could lead to a political battle between the Democratic governor and the Republican general assembly.
“This is a tug of war between an executive branch and a legislative branch and if nothing comes of any of the legislation as a result of a lack of agreement then we have gridlock that persists to frustrate Virginia's desire for change,” said David Wasserman, with UVa’s Center for Politics.
The next step for the Governor's changes is approval from the General Assembly.
