Leave it to Evers: Tony works up a sweat vetoing bills

Not known for keeping a grueling work schedule, Gov. Tony Evers rolled up his sleeves last week and did something he hasn’t done much of this year: he signed bills into law. 

The Democrat put his Tony Evers on nearly three dozen pieces of legislation, more than doubling the number of bills he’s signed all year. 

Before his flurry of activity, the governor had signed but 21 bills.

He’s now running slightly above average in the number of bills signed at this period in his first term, according to Wispolitics.com.

The Madison Democrat has been quite liberal with his veto pen, rejecting 11 bills passed in the Republican-controlled Legislature. That’s second only to former Gov. Jim Doyle, also a Democrat, during the period, Wispolitics reported. Doyle vetoed 15 bills in his first 11 months in office. 

The long holiday weekend couldn’t have come at a better time for Evers. With all that signing and vetoing, he probably didn’t have time to write his one daily email.
