The Governor's Approval of Legislation in Connecticut, 7 New York University Law Review 182 (1929)

Abstract

THE Supreme Court of Errors of Connecticut in the case of State v.
McCook, decided July 25, 1929, determined an important question as
to the time within which the governor may approve legislation in that
state. Article IV, § 12, of the constitution of Connecticut, framed in
1818, is, with verbal changes, and with differences of the period for
executive consideration and in legislative majorities, substantially the
same as the provision of the constitution of the United States with respect
to executive approval or disapproval of legislation.
