In a Facebook post from February 22, state Rep. Bronna Kahle (R-Adrian) criticized Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for vetoing a bill that would have granted schools in Michigan access to build outdoor sports structures and other seasonal facilities.

Rep. Kahle used the hashtag #UnnecessaryGovernmentRegulation to express her opinion.

"Earlier this month, Gov. Whitmer vetoed a bill that would have allowed school districts to build press boxes and seasonal sports-viewing outbuildings without permanent heating systems," Rep. Kahle wrote.

"Madison School District in Adrian faced shelling out $250,000 in its pursuit of a new football stadium press box. The bill would have given K-12 districts a pass from meeting this unnecessary, costly requirement," Kahle wrote. 

Senator Dale Zorn (R-Ida Township) said in a statement, “By vetoing this bill, the governor is saying that she doesn’t care if schools have to waste valuable time and taxpayer dollars on unnecessary building requirements or a burdensome appeals process,” according to MiSenateGOP.
