Cedar Rapids Gazette: Gov. Kim Reynolds today vetoed a legislative proposal seeking to limit the attorney general’s ability to join out-of-state lawsuits after she and Tom Miller reached an agreement whereby he will not embark on future litigation without the consent of the governor. Reynolds signed a $584 million budget bill funding many justice-system functions in the fiscal year beginning July 1 but she used her item-veto power to reject a controversial provision that would have required the attorney general, when joining an out-of-state lawsuit, to first obtain the permission of the governor, the Executive Council or the Legislature.
