7 More Gubernatorial Vetoes

Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) used his veto power to scuttle seven General Assembly-approved bills after legislators refused to go along earlier this month with his suggested amendments. The action brings Youngkin's veto total to 33 bills, the most since Gov. Jim Gilmore in 1998. The links below go to the governor's veto explanations.
