STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

1 STATE HOUSE STATION

AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

 

May 31, 2013

 

The 126th Legislature of the State of Maine

State House

Augusta, Maine

 

Dear Honorable Members of the 126th Legislature:

 

Under the authority vested in me by Article IV, Part Third, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Maine, I am hereby vetoing LD 1201, "Resolve, Directing the Workers' Compensation Board To Study the Issue of Addressing Psychological and Physical Harm to Employees Due to Abusive Work Environments."

 

The Workers' Compensation Board does not have the expertise to study the effects of bullying in the workplace.  Additionally, it is unclear what the Legislature hopes to achieve from this study.  Maine law already provides employees the ability to collect compensation for specific injuries which occur in the workplace, whether physical or psychological. I cannot understand what additional policy recommendations could come forward from this study.  If individual legislators have specific ideas, they should bring them forward on their own merits and let the debate occur.

 

The other issue is the continual march of resolves directing executive branch studies.  While each one may be able to be completed "within existing resources," the cumulative effect is a significant drain on Executive Branch resources.  I have written time and again that the Legislature should seek to utilize legislative staff for these efforts, or provide additional funds to agencies to complete these numerous studies.  Until that time, I remain strongly concerned with each Resolve that reaches my desk.   

 

For these reasons, I return LD 1201 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor

STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

1 STATE HOUSE STATION

AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

 

May 31, 2013

 

The 126th Legislature of the State of Maine

State House

Augusta, Maine

 

Dear Honorable Members of the 126th Legislature:

 

Under the authority vested in me by Article IV, Part Third, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Maine, I am hereby vetoing LD 1366, "An Act To Require Public Schools To Offer Instruction Related to Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and the Use of an Automated External Defibrillator."

 

As I wrote to the Legislature on LD 1139 in the 125th Legislature, CPR is an important life-saving technique and I encourage all Maine citizens to undertake training so that we, the people of Maine, are prepared in an emergency.  Further, Automated External Defibrillators have saved a number of lives over the years and should be at the ready during large public gatherings.

 

However, this bill mandates instruction in all of Maine's public schools in accordance with rules to be adopted by the Department of Education.  Those rules are supposed to ensure that the programs public schools offer are done without additional cost to the public schools.  It is difficult, if not impossible, to develop a program that can be provided in every public school at no cost.

 

I have heard time and again from teachers, principals, and administrators that Maine's high cost of education is due to continued unfunded mandates from Augusta.  If the Legislature truly believes this policy is necessary and requires a state law, then the bill should be resubmitted and funded with a reasonable estimate of the total cost, instead of directing the Department of Education to do the impossible, creating a statewide program at no cost.   As I said in the beginning, training in CPR and AEDs is a noble goal, but it is one that should occur through an individual approaches for each community, rather than a state law.

 

For these reasons, I return LD 1366 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor
