Bevin vetoes bill, portion of another

Associated Press

LOUISVILLE -- Republican Gov. Matt Bevin vetoed bills that would have created a board to regulate the recreational therapy industry and scheduled how to pay for a veterans' nursing home in Bowling Green.

Bevin vetoed Senate bill 219 and a portion of House bill 13 on Tuesday. The legislature has adjourned for the year and cannot vote to override the vetoes.

Senate bill 219 would have created the Kentucky Board of Recreational Therapists. Bevin vetoed it because he said lawmakers did not set aside enough money to pay for it.

Part of House bill 13 would have required the state to pay back bonds supporting the veterans' nursing home before it spends money on another debt. Bevin vetoed that part of the bill because he said it sets a bad precedent.
