TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES:
GOVERNOR'S VETO MESSAGE FORHOUSE BILL 1287
I am returning House Bill Number 1287: "AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 25-11-401, MISSISSIPPI CODE OF 1972, TO AUTHORIZE INTERNS AND RESIDENTS IN TRAINING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI MEDICAL CENTER AND THE COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE AT MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY TO BE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE OPTIONAL RETIREMENT PROGRAM; AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES" without my approval and assign the following reason for my veto.
House Bill No. 1287 is identical to and duplicates Senate Bill No. 2512 which has been previously signed into law. This veto is not intended to and does not affect the status of Senate Bill No. 2512.
