Governor Signs OE Bills, Vetoes SB 39

By John Forester | March 29, 2021

On Friday, March 26th, Governor Evers took action on three education-related bills detailed below.  He signed two bills related to open enrollment, Senate Bills 109 and 110.  The SAA took no position on these bills.  The SAA rarely takes positions on open enrollment bills because they tend to affect districts differently.  Governor Evers also vetoed Senate Bill 39.  The SAA opposed SB 39.  The Governor’s veto message is linked below.

SB-109 Open Enrollment (Ballweg, Joan) Full-time open enrollment to attend a fully virtual program offered by a nonresident school district during the 2021-22 school year. Signed (Act 18)
