AGO 1975 No. 20 >  September 5, 1975
LABOR - COLLECTIVE BARGAINING - PUBLIC EMPLOYEES - GOVERNOR - VETO - EFFECT OF PARTIAL VETO OF CHAPTERS 288 AND 296, LAWS OF 1975, 1ST EX. SESS. UPON REMAINING PROVISIONS
LABOR ‑- COLLECTIVE BARGAINING ‑- PUBLIC EMPLOYEES ‑- GOVERNOR ‑- VETO ‑- EFFECT OF PARTIAL VETO OF CHAPTERS 288 and 296, LAWS OF 1975, 1st EX. SESS. UPON REMAINING PROVISIONS (1) Because the governor's veto of § 2 of Substitute Senate Bill No. 2408 (chapter 296, Laws of 1975, 1st Ex. Sess.), the public agencies now responsible for the performance of the functions thereby proposed by this act to be transferred to a new "public employment relations commission" will continue to perform those functions after September 8, 1975, in the absence of further legislative action.  (2) In view of the governor's veto of § 4 of Substitute Senate Bill No. 2500 (chapter 288, Laws of 1975, 1st Ex.Sess.), certificated school district employees will, in the absence of further legislative action, continue after January 1, 1976, to be governed by the provisions of the school employees' professional negotiations act (chapter 28A.72 RCW), notwithstanding the express repeal thereof by the 1975 act, except to the extent that such provisions of the new law as are unaffected by the veto are in conflict with the earlier law.  (3) Administration of the provisions of chapter 288, Laws of 1975, 1st Ex. Sess., and chapter 296, Laws of 1975, 1st Ex. Sess., following their respective effective dates, by a new state agency will be unnecessary unless the governor's vetoes of portions thereof are overridden by the legislature or the vetoed sections are reenacted in a different form.
