It Took Governor Jack Markell One Hour To Veto House Bill 50

I got the call at 12:57pm yesterday from State Rep. John Kowalko that Governor Jack Markell vetoed House Bill 50.  When did he receive it?

John,

Just sent over HB 50 at 11:57 a.m.

Best regards,

And yet he also had an hour to supposedly “review” the legislation, get multiple quotes from people at the top of the state to the bottom, sign Senate Joint Resolution #2, and draft a three page letter to the Delaware House of Representatives.  More proof this was pre-planned and he never had any intention of signing the bill…
