CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has vetoed seven bills that passed the Republican-controlled Legislature this past session, which is the lowest number he's rejected in any of the three sessions that took place on his watch.
The Republican governor wrapped up his work signing and vetoing bills on Friday, less than two weeks after lawmakers finished their 120-day session.
Bills he vetoed included a measure about breaking up a tiny Nevada town and a measure changing rules on special license plates for classic cars.
The popular governor vetoed 17 bills after the 2013 legislative session and rejected 28 measures in 2011. Democrats controlled the Legislature in both of those sessions.
Sandoval has issued 52 vetoes throughout his career and ranks third among all governors for the number of vetoes.
