Since this bill has been passed to be enacted by both the House and Senate, it now goes to the Governor who can:

1) Sign the bill
2) Veto the bill
3) allow it to become law without signature (after 10 days, excluding Sunday)
4) disapprove a dollar amount using line item veto

Indications are that the Governor will sign the bill, meaning the bill will become law 90 days after the final adjournment of this legislative session.
