ACLU-PA Position: Opposes
HB 2069 is a proposed amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution that would amend Article III, Section 9 to eliminate the ability of the governor to veto resolutions that disapprove of executive branch regulations. PA's regulatory process is arduous and gives legislators numerous opportunities to influence and shape regulatory decisions. Allowing the legislature to strike down any regulation by a simple majority vote would undermine the balance of power between the branches, while turning complex decisions into political footballs.
