Gov. Brown has yet to veto any bills

Aug. 11 deadline to notify lawmakers

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has yet to veto any of the bills passed in the recently completed legislative session.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://is.gd/eEPFJq ) that Brown has already signed more than 600 bills into law. She has until Aug. 11 to notify legislative leaders if she plans to veto any of the 145 bills still under review for policy concerns and any conflict with Oregon's Constitution.

Her office says there are no vetoes on the horizon, but that could change by the deadline.

Brown earlier this year said she might consider vetoing two bills that would create exemptions to the state's land use planning laws. The Legislature amended one of the laws, which makes it easier to mine on land zoned for farm use in several Eastern Oregon counties.
