Gov. Mike Dunleavy

Gov. Mike Dunleavy will weigh in with his authority to make line-item vetoes.

Last week, Gov. Mike Dunleavy signed SB 174, a new law that adopts into law that governing bodies may not adopt a school dress code that prohibits students from wearing traditional hairstyles, or those historically associated with race. This includes “natural hairstyles” such as braids, twists, and tight coils.
