  • Decedent: A deceased person.
  • Line item veto: Authority to veto part rather than all of an appropriations act. The President does not now have item-veto authority. He must sign or veto the entire appropriations act. The item veto sometimes is referred to as a line-item veto.
  • scaffolding: means a temporarily elevated platform and its supporting structure that is used on a construction site to support a person, material, or both. See Montana Code 50-77-101
  • Several: means two or more. See Montana Code 1-1-201
  • Veto: The procedure established under the Constitution by which the President/Governor refuses to approve a bill or joint resolution and thus prevents its enactment into law. A regular veto occurs when the President/Governor returns the legislation to the house in which it originated. The President/Governor usually returns a vetoed bill with a message indicating his reasons for rejecting the measure. In Congress, the veto can be overridden only by a two-thirds vote in both the Senate and the House.
