Madison…Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement regarding the action Governor Evers took on bills sent to him by the Legislature.
“Governor Evers has set a record today for the most vetoes of any governor in the history of our state. While Legislative Republicans continue to pass needed reforms to address election security, rising crime, and workforce shortages, the Governor continues to ignore the important issues facing Wisconsinites.
He has yet again refused to protect the integrity of our elections by vetoing legislation that prohibits private funds in our elections, closes voter ID loopholes, protects our senior’s right to vote, cleans voter rolls, and holds state agencies accountable for violations of election laws.
Further, with crime on the rise in Wisconsin and across the nation, Governor Evers vetoed legislation that would have worked to put more officers on our streets.”
