Rockford Hills, San Andreas – The San Andreas Supreme Court has ruled that the veto of H.R. 147 by former Governor Karmen McKenzie was legal and has cleared any doubt that the power of veto does apply to resolutions.

In early August, Representative Oliver Hall filed for a judicial review on the veto by Governor McKenzie over Resolution H.R. 147; which would have established a committee to investigate the Department of Commerce and Labor after accusations of corruption and serious issues inside the department.

Hall argued that

The Governor does not possess the power to veto a resolution passed by the State Legislature. This is especially true that resolution falls within Article III, Section II, Subsection II ‘Scope of Resolutions’: “The State Legislature may pass Resolutions that do not require approval of the executive; however these Resolutions are limited to: …Create advisory, coordinating, study or investigative committees, or commissions”. 

Appellate brief – oliver hall

However the San Andreas highest Justices agreed that

the Executive has the right to veto any bill or resolution passed by the Legislative. Through arguments made by the Appellant, the Supreme Court must look at why the word Resolution was added to Article III – Section 1 in the first place. We conclude that it must have been added to allow the Executive this power.
