2021 - 2022 Legislative Session
Bills Vetoed by Governor Baker at the end of the 2019 - 2020 Session:
  • ​12/24/20  Baker vetoed the Roe Act which guarantees a women's right to abortion.  His veto was overridden by the legislature
  • 1/14/21  Baker vetoed the Climate Act which provides a roadmap for the state to become carbon neutral by 2050 and directs utilities to buy more offshore wind power. The bill also would've mandated the state's electricity supply be 40 percent renewable by 2030 and created environmental justice provisions.  The legislature is expected to file the bill again using the exact same language since Baker's veto came outside of the window for an override.
  • 1/14/21 Pocket veto of sections of the Economic Development bill which provides resources for Affordable Housing.  H.5250
  • 1/15/21 Baker vetoed key elements of the Transportation bill designed to fund services.
