Gov. Mike Easley has vetoed nine bills.
As the first governor to use the veto in North Carolina history, he's taken on a hodgepodge of legislation in his two terms in office.
The vetoed bills would have:
* Approved certain legislative appointments.
* Changed mortgage lending laws.
* Changed teacher certification.
* Compensated billboard owners.
* Changed teacher certifications.
* Sold an airport site to Currituck County for a dollar.
* Granted access to state buildings to employees associations.
* Given incentives to Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.
* Allowed wider boats and trailers on state roads.
Vetoes of the first eight bills were all sustained. The boats bill was vetoed Sunday, so the legislature has not yet acted on it.
