Governor Walker is now deciding how, and not if, he’ll be signing lame duck legislation passed last week that curtails the powers of incoming Governor elect Tony Evers.
Walker indicated at a Pewaukee press conference that his staff is deciding how best to sign those bills, and if changes need to be made.
“Right now it’s most likely that we’ll probably do a series, at least one if not multiple, line item vetoes, is what we’re looking at most closely.”
He says that Democrats and the media have been inflating the impact the bills will have.
“I could veto everything, I could sign it all, or I could do a line item veto. No matter which of those three options I do, Tony Evers come January 7th, will have some of the strongest powers of any governor in America.”
Walker has not yet officially received the bills from the Legislature.
