Enactment over Executive's disapproval
Faden, Senior Legislative Attorney
Enactment over Executive's disapproval:
The Council enacted Bill 11-12 on May 1 by a 6-3 vote (Councilmembers Ervin, Floreen,
and Rice opposed) and the Executive disapproved
on May 14. See attached veto message.
Under Charter §208, the Council may override the Executive's disapproval if 6 Councilmembers
vote to re-enact the bill.
In the attached veto message, the Executive noted several specific policy objections to the
bill as enacted, few if any of which his staff had previously articulated. None of them present a
legal bar to re-enacting the bill, and all of them could be taken up as later amendments if this bill
is enacted over the Executive's veto.
