Deal issues veto statements

May 9, 2012

Gov. Nathan Deal vetoed two bills on Tuesday. The following are his veto messages.

HB 911 – Putnam County; change compensation for certain officials

House Bill 911 contains specific language providing additional compensation for the sheriff of Putnam County and various officials of the Putnam County State Court. I am vetoing this legislation because of the lack of justification provided for such increases in compensation for these officials. Accordingly, I VETO HB 911.

HB 975 – Habersham County; relating to homestead exemption for school district ad valorem taxes

Both the sponsor of this legislation and the Habersham County Commission requested that I veto this legislation. Accordingly, I VETO HB 975.
