Would not be cool if Gov. Christie is slow rolling us...

Anyone have a link where we can see if he does or does not veto?

The point is to make it known that we have numbers and a voice, we are concerned, he works for us, and we are not going away quietly. believe me that he is receiving the same attention from the opponents.
Good point.

Re: TAKE ACTION: The NJ poker bill deadline is noon today! Tell Gov. Christie to sign it.

what would happen in the case of a conditional veto it passes but we wait until he tweaks the bill? Then its passed?

Re: TAKE ACTION: The NJ poker bill deadline is noon today! Tell Gov. Christie to sign it.

it does not pass, it goes back to the legislature to fix parts of the bill then it goes back to the gov's desk.

If the bill is conditionally vetoed, the legislature can choose to override it. I think that's unlikely, but if it's an up-front attempt to strong arm changes in unrelated legislation, I suppose it's at least possible.

Re: TAKE ACTION: The NJ poker bill deadline is noon today! Tell Gov. Christie to sign it.

CONDITIONAL VETO A veto in which the Governor objects to parts of a bill and proposes amendments that would make it acceptable. If the Legislature re-enacts the bill with the recommended amendments, it is presented again to the Governor for signature.

This is actually pretty good news, right? (Given that it actually happens)

PPA is seeking independent confirmation, but it appears thus far the reporting is accurate ... conditional veto. Details will be forthcoming.

Re: TAKE ACTION: The NJ poker bill deadline is noon today! Tell Gov. Christie to sign it.

PPA can now confirm Gov. Christie's conditional veto of the poker bill. We have obtained a copy of the NJ conditional veto. It looks very good for us. Full statement forthcoming...

Re: TAKE ACTION: The NJ poker bill deadline is noon today! Tell Gov. Christie to sign it.

now it's understandable why a governor would want to wait until the last day, to make recommendations so specific must be so time consuming for the poor schlep who actually has to sit there and edit the bill.
