                        and accompanying veto, item (2-2)

 

STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

1 STATE HOUSE STATION

AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

June 14, 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 610, "Resolve, To Review and Amend the Rules Regarding Hospital Charity Care Guidelines."

 

I want to thank Representative Sanderson for bringing this bill forward.  Since the Affordable Care Act claims it will enable coverage for individuals through a taxpayer-subsidized exchange, it is appropriate to reduce the eligibility thresholds for charity care in our hospitals.  That is why I am directing the Department of Health and Human Services to begin the rulemaking process immediately.  Allowing the Resolve to become law would slow the process and therefore I return it today.

 

Additionally, this Resolve would create another working group with executive branch resources, and would ultimately require multiple reports to the Legislature.  As you all know, the Department has the legal authority to propose rulemaking and the Administrative Procedures Act provides an opportunity for public input during that process.  If the various organizations impacted by these rules decide to collaborate on their own time utilizing their own resources, they are free to do so.  Their comments will be given all due consideration by the Department.

 

For these reasons, I return LD 610 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor

STATE OF MAINE

AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

 

June 14, 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 555, "Resolve, Directing the Commissioner of Professional and Financial Regulation To Convene a Working Group To Consider Reforms of the Practices of the Nursing Home Administrators Licensing Board."

 

I want to thank Representative Sanderson for bringing this bill forward.  The original version directed the Nursing Home Administrators Licensing Board to amend its rules and provide opportunities to recognize work experience in the licensing process.  This is an important objective and one I support.

 

That is why the board is currently creating rules to meet this objective, as well as deal with some of the concerns related to continuing education credits.  We are on the path to completion for the underlying objective of this Resolve and I am concerned a working group would slow down progress.  The Administrative Procedures Act provides opportunity for input and comment and that provides the proper forum to fine tune the rules.

 

For these reasons, I return LD 555 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor
