In addition to vetoing the civil unions measure, Gov. Linda Lingle yesterday vetoed 28 other measures that she said would adversely impact the state or be detrimental to public policy.

All of the vetoes issued yesterday will stand, after House leadership decided to not call members back for a special session to override vetoes.

Among the bills rejected yesterday was House Bill 2377, which sets up the process for having members of the state Board of Education appointed by the governor, subject to Senate approval. The implementation would be subject to voters approving a constitutional amendment to do away with an elected school board in favor of the appointment process.

Lingle this year has issued a total of 47 vetoes, 11 of which were overridden by the Legislature during the regular session.
