W.Va. gov vetoes exotic animals ban, other bills

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WTW) — A bid to restrict exotic animals in West Virginia is among a half-dozen bills vetoed from the recent regular session.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin disapproved the measures by Tuesday's deadline to act on legislation.

The Division of Natural Resources' concerns regarding funding and enforcement prompted the exotic animal veto.

Two other vetoed bills involved fees. One proposed special municipal charges, but was deemed unnecessary because of existing law. The other involved housing development improvement fees for future infrastructure. Tomblin cited pending litigation over such fees.

The governor called for further study when he vetoed a proposal to ease the process for erasing felony convictions.

Technical errors doomed bills targeting graffiti and updating rules for archiving government records.

Tomblin earlier vetoed bills addressing antique autos and the Municipal Pensions Oversight Board.
