A state Senate committee this week gave the green light to a proposed constitutional amendment limiting the so-called "Frankenstein veto" power of the governor. The committee action sets the stage for a vote in the full Senate on the measure, which has already been approved by the Assembly. If the Senate OKs it, the proposed amendment to the state constitution will go to the voters for ratification.
