Governor Phil Scott Desperately Searching For Excuse To NOT Sign New Marijuana Legalization Bill!

Vermont Governor Phil Scott is still desperately searching for an excuse to NOT sign the new marijuana legalization Bill in Vermont.


..."Scott says he has decided to sign H. 511, the marijuana legalization bill, between Thursday afternoon and Monday’s deadline."...

..."The bill arrived on the governor’s desk from the Legislature earlier this week. It is being reviewed for technical errors by the governor’s legal counsel. "...

 ..."NBC5 is gathering more information on this developing story"...

(The Bill was passed by the State Legislature January 10, giving 5 days for the Governor to sign it; so how did he stretch January 11th to January 22nd into "five days"? Wow, is that math used all the time up there in Montpelier?)

Not worried

The governor said he wanted to sign this, and said he'd sign it in private before Monday. I have no problem with his counsel reviewing it to make sure it holds proverbial water. Rather it be right.

It seems the five days started counting once the LT Gov signed it and sent it to the governor this week. (State website says delivered to Gov on January 16)

I don't see any "desperate searching for excuses not to sign" the bill.
