Scott’s communications director, Rebecca Kelley, did not indicate whether the governor would sign the bill, but said that he will not veto it — effectively allowing the bill to become law, as it will automatically if he does not act on the bill within five days.
“The Governor is and has been pro-choice and believes in a woman’s right to choose, so he has ruled out vetoing the bill — it will become law,” she wrote in an email.
Scott has not received the bill or any indication from the legislature as to when he would receive it, Kelley added.
The Vermont and Nevada bills stand in stark contrast to restrictive laws passed in Alabama and Georgia attempting to force the Supreme Court to hear cases that could overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
