Deadline for Hawaii governor to signal bill vetoes

HONOLULU (AP) - The deadline has arrived for Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie to tell lawmakers which bills he plans to veto.

Those potential vetoes must be announced on Monday.

A spokesman for Abercrombie says the governor is compiling a list of about a dozen bills that he intends to reject.

Abercrombie has until July 8 to sign bills into law. But he has to give lawmakers advance warning so they can take action if they choose to override a veto.

Lawmakers also could propose changes to bills to meet the governor's approval.
