Letter to The Honorable Glenn Koepp Secretary of the Senate

Letter

By:
Date:
Location: Baton Rouge, LA

Today, Governor Bobby Jindal announced he has vetoed SB 1 and issued the following veto letter:

July 5, 2011

The Honorable Glenn Koepp
Secretary of the Senate
State Capitol
Baton Rouge, LA 70802

Re: Senate Bill No. 1 by Senator Adley

Dear Mr. Koepp:

Senate Bill No. 1 by Senator Adley broadens coverage of death and disability benefits for Louisiana National Guardsmen.

While this is an important reform, this legislation is not necessary since it is a duplicate of House Bill No. 143 by Representative Lorusso, which has already been signed into law. For this reason, I have vetoed Senate Bill No. 1 and hereby return it to the Senate.

Sincerely,

Bobby Jindal
Governor
