Hawaii gov. vetoes 3 bills, signs feral bird bill

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie is vetoing three bills but is signing one that would outlaw the excessive feeding of feral birds as a public health nuisance.

The governor on Tuesday notified lawmakers he would veto three of the bills they passed during the most recent legislative session.

One of the three vetoed bills is related to the state building code. Abercrombie objects to it because it seeks funding from the Hurricane Relief Fund. The governor says using the fund for something other than its primary purpose would set a bad precedent.

Lawmakers say the governor signed the feral bird feed bill on Monday. State Rep. Gregg Takayama says this new law will help people suffering from the smell and droppings of large flocks of pigeons fed by their neighbors.
