CHARLESTON, West Virginia — Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has vetoed two bills over technical issues.

On Tuesday, the Democrat nixed a proposal about net metering relationships between utilities and people who generate their own electricity.

Some solar advocates have opposed the bill.

Tomblin also vetoed a bill giving access to potentially life-saving medication to people at risk of overdosing on opioids, including heroin.

The governor pointed out that the bill was introduced at his request, and pledged his support for it.

However, he pinpointed technical problems in it.

Tomblin suggested changes to both bills in his veto messages.
