July 22 - Governor Vetoes The Bill
The Governor decided to veto the bill because, while it addressed the short-term needs of the state's transportation, he did not believe it was comprehensive enough.
"It responds to a key priority of my Administration and will stimulate many jobs. I thank the Legislature for that. But this good bill is not good enough," Patrick said in a statement explaining his vote. "For these reasons, I will not support it," he concluded.
