Iowa: Will Governor pocket veto Right-to-Carry bill?

Monday, April 19, 2010

Last month, the Legislature overwhelmingly passed a bill that would require sheriffs to issue a concealed weapon permit to anyone who legally qualifies, stripping away the sheriff's discretion to reject applicants. However, lawmakers sent the bill to the governor within the last three days of session, invoking the pocket veto option. If the governor does not sign the bill within 30 days of passage, he kills the bill. Gov. Chet Culver, a Democrat, has 11 days left to decide. A spokeswoman said the bill still is "under consideration."
