Governor Mann Vetoes Two Sec
tions of General Appro
Under tho clauso of section TO of
thc State Constitution which provldcs
that "tho Governor shall have tbe
power to voto any partlcular ltcm or
ltems of an approprlatlon blll, but tho
voto shall not affect tho Itom or itcm.i
to whlcli he does not object." Govcr
nor Mann has vetoed two clauses lu
.he general approprlatlon blll as passed
ay the Legislaturc.
One of thoso provldcs for tcrmlnat
Ing the contract which the State ha.
wlth tho Miclilo Company. of Char?
lottesvllle, for selllng State reports.
Tho amendment was added ln tho
House. upon recommcndatlon \of tho
Llbrary Committee, under tho lrnpres
slon that thls action would cheapert
tho cost of tho Virginia Reports to tho
lawyers, and at thc same tlmo mako
a proflt for thc State.
The reason for thc veto Is thc sama
as that given by the Governor ln hla
.bjectlons lo tho semi-monthly wages
blll. lt is that the matter contalned
ln tho clauso Is not mentloned In tha
tltle. Therefore. pursulng tho Hamo
reasoning. thc Mlchlo Company had no
notico of tho proposed change-, and thes
Insertlon of the new mattor, and had
thereforo no opportunlty to appear
md oppose t_io._propp8itlon. The con?
tract will thereforo remaln ln forco
for the next two years. Instead oC
belng termlnateti on July 1 next. aa
provided ln the blll. .
Tho other clauso vetoed ls that on
page 13 of tho enrollod blll, refcrrlrig
to thc approprlatlon for contlnulntr
the publication of the Journal of tho
Houpo of Burgesscs and for travellng
IlbrarloB. Thls is a mc.ro mlstako, as
thc same item was repeated ij) tho
same languago, and was ovidently*
lievor intended to appear twicc.
Governor Mann. has not yet com
pleted hls consideratlon of the bllla
passed by tho Legislaturc. _?
