CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has again vetoed an uncontroversial bill about licensing for engineers because of technical errors.

On Wednesday, the Democrat’s veto letter pointed out the same type of title error that existed in an earlier veto.

Tomblin previously vetoed the bill late last month, and lawmakers tried to address the issues before passing the bill again.

The bill didn’t garner a ‘no’ vote in the House or Senate.

So far, Tomblin has vetoed six bills for technical errors. He has been presented and re-signed one of them.

He has only vetoed one bill based on its content. The Legislature overrode his veto of a 20-week abortion ban, which he considered unconstitutional.
