Governor’s Veto Messages
November 19, 2019
To the Honorable Members of the Assembly:
hist110824I am vetoing Assembly Bill 249 in its entirety.
This bill relates to the designation and marking of a highway or bridge for an honoree. Under the legislation, houses of the legislature are prohibited from considering a bill to designate a highway or bridge to an honoree unless specific criteria are met.
I am vetoing this bill in its entirety because I object to limiting the ability to commemorate those who have made significant contributions to or sacrifices for the people of Wisconsin. Recent legislation that honors the victims of the 9 / 11 terrorist attacks, for example, would not meet the criteria in this bill. Further, I object to this bill because it places an unconstitutional limit on the deliberations or actions of future legislatures. See Flynn v. Dep't of Admin., 216 Wis. 2d 521, 543, 576 N.W.2d 245, 254 (1998).
Respectfully submitted,
Tony Evers

To the Honorable Members of the Assembly:
hist110845I am vetoing Assembly Bill 76 in its entirety.
  This bill would prohibit the Department of Health Services from requiring that an instructional program for nurse aides exceed the minimum number of total training hours and hours of clinical experience required under federal law. State law currently requires programs to be at least 120 hours in length and include 32 hours of clinical experience. Federal law requires programs to be at least 75 hours in length and include 16 hours of clinical experience.
  I am vetoing this bill in its entirety because I object to providing less training for those who care for our state's most vulnerable citizens. Research has shown that higher training standards result in better outcomes for patients, lower staff turnover, and higher job satisfaction. There are better ways to address the shortage of nurse aides than reducing the quality of training programs. That is why I directed the Governor's Task Force on Caregiving with developing strategies to attract and retain a strong direct care workforce.  
Respectfully submitted,
Tony Evers
