Among them: The $6.4 billion state budget, which includes pay raises for state employees. It also includes a 10 percent raise for elected officials across the state, and increases funds for public schools, higher education, economic development and transportation.

The governor can line-item veto individual parts of the budget. Any bill not signed by Wednesday's deadline is automatically pocked-vetoed.
