TO THE HONORABLE MEMBERS OF THE SENATE: I am vetoing Senate Bill 40. The bill requires the Department of Transportation to designate and mark the portion of U.S. Highway 14 from Madison to the Wisconsin-Illinois border as the Ronald Reagan Highway.
I recognize that state highway and bridge designations have been used to pay tribute to and memorialize certain individuals. This bill, however, violates the precedent that this honor be bestowed only on Wisconsin-born citizens or state residents. Respectfully submitted, JIM DOYLE Governor
