Constitutional Problems Involved in the McCook Case, 3 Connecticut Bar Journal 217 (1929)
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 this State. Article IV, sec. 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.
