New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has vetoed a non-controversial bipartisan bill that would have allowed all federal judges to officiate weddings in the state because some might have been nominated to the bench by President Donald Trump.
“I cannot in good conscience support legislation that would authorize such actions by federal judges who are appointed by this federal administration,” Cuomo’s veto message stated, the New York Post reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
“President Trump does not embody who we are as New Yorkers,” the Democratic governor added on Friday. “The cornerstones that built our great state are diversity, tolerance, and inclusion. Based on these reasons, I must veto this bill.”
The report notes that the bill passed both Democrat-controlled NY state Senate and Assembly in a bipartisan landslide. The bill was sponsored by Democrat state Sen. Liz Krueger. It passed the state Senate by a 61 to 1 vote, and passed the state Assembly by a 144 to 2 vote.
However, Cuomo said it’s a no-go, as some of the judges who might officiate at weddings are Trump nominees.
