Abstract

This Article considers the controversy surrounding the governor's power of amendatory veto as provided in the 1970 Constitution, and whether this gives the governor too much power over pending legislation. The Article details the history and debate which led to the inclusion of this provision in the current constitutional document, explores the ways the amendatory veto has been used, and describes the ongoing battle between the legislature and the governor concerning its use. The Article concludes that procedural changes in the manner in which the power is used will result in a better balance between the two branches of government.
