Otter’s veto message…

Here's a link to Gov. Butch Otter's veto message on HB 298, the final version of the “nullification” bill on the national health care reform law. “Even though I vetoed the bill today, I have issued an executive order … prohibiting state agencies and departments from implementing Obamacare, while allowing us to develop our own health care solutions,” Otter wrote. “That avoids the unintended consequences of this legislation and strikes an appropriate balance between achieving the spirit of HB 298 - which I support - and my desire to not capitulate to the national government.”

This is the first and only bill Otter has vetoed this year, from all the legislation passed in the 2011 Idaho legislative session.
