Statement: Governor Veto of Bipartisan Bill
November 19, 2019
Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement after Governor Evers vetoed Assembly Bill 249, which was approved by both chambers on a voice vote. The bill co-authored by Speaker Vos and Representative Dave Considine (D-Baraboo) set forth criteria for honorary highway and bridge designations.
“This bipartisan bill was intended to preserve the integrity of the tradition of honoring worthy individuals in our state and was widely supported in both chambers. It’s unfortunate that Governor Evers chose to play partisan games by vetoing the bill. The governor continues to put politics over people.”
