Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Tuesday vetoed 15 measures passed by the 2011 Hawaii Legislature.

They include measures that would have required online voter registration, tracked the sales of pseudoephedrine and eliminated the statute of limitations for civil actions brought by victims of sexual offenses as a minor.

But bills making the cut include ones that authorize a study of vog's impact and repeal parts of the Hawaii Prepaid Health Care Act so it comports with federal legislation.

Tuesday was the deadline for the governor to sign, veto or let bills become law without his signature.

Leaders of the state Senate and House of Representatives have already said they would not call a special session to override the vetoes.
