                        and accompanying veto, item (2-2)

 

STATE OF MAINE

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

1 STATE HOUSE STATION

AUGUSTA, MAINE  04333-0001

 

April 11, 2017

 

The 128th Legislature of the State of Maine

State House

Augusta, Maine

 

Dear Honorable Members of the 128th Legislature:

 

Under the authority vested in me by Article IV, Part Third, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Maine, I am hereby vetoing LD 12, "An Act To Incorporate Protections for Living Donors into Maine Law."

 

Once again, the Legislature seeks to compel Maine to become an outlier in regulatory policy.  This bill would make Maine one of the only states in the nation to prohibit life, long-term care, and disability insurers from considering living organ donor status among prospective policyholders.

 

While the decision to donate a kidney or other organ is commendable, it carries significant health risks that could affect other policyholders in the insurance context.  It is important to note this bill does not apply to health insurance, where donors already have guaranteed issue rights and other important protections.  It applies only to more discretionary policies that concern finances, such as life, long-term care, and disability income insurance.  These types of coverage have always been subject to risk-based underwriting and rating, and prohibiting those practices would substantially change the nature of the market for these lines of insurance.

 

This bill would allow people to buy these coverages immediately prior to their organ donation procedure, which would create adverse selection and skew insurers' actuarial estimates.  LD 12 is borne of good intentions but surely the Legislature can think of a better way to help those who donate organs than making Maine the first state to tinker with voluntary insurer risk pools in this way.

 

For these reasons, I return LD 12 unsigned and vetoed.  I strongly urge the Legislature to sustain it.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Paul R. LePage

Governor

JOINT RESOLUTION MAKING APPLICATION TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES FOR CALLING A CONVENTION TO PROPOSE AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES TO LIMIT THE POWER OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

 

            WHEREAS, executive orders by the President of the United States have become a vehicle through which the President may overstep the limits of the President's constitutional authority; and

 

            WHEREAS, the concentration of power at the federal level has had the effect of making federal officials less responsive to the will of the people and more readily influenced by lobbyists, wealthy corporations and special interests in Washington, D.C.; and

 

            WHEREAS, much of federal law is now made by federal bureaucrats who were never chosen by the people and have no accountability to the people whatsoever; and

 

            WHEREAS, policy decisions made at the state level tend to be more responsive to the needs and desires of the people; and

 

            WHEREAS, the Federal Government has created a crushing national debt through improper and imprudent spending; and

 

            WHEREAS, the Federal Government has invaded the legitimate roles of the states through the manipulative process of federal mandates, many of which are unfunded to a great extent; and

 

            WHEREAS, the states have the ability to restore the responsiveness of government to the people and to restrain abuses of federal power by proposing amendments to the United States Constitution through a limited convention of the states under Article V; and

 

            WHEREAS, under the United States Constitution, Article V, the Congress of the United States, whenever two-thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to the United States Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two-thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments that, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the United States Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three-fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; now, therefore, be it

 

            RESOLVED: That the Legislature of Maine hereby applies to the Congress of the United States, under the provisions of Article V of the United States Constitution, for the calling of a convention of the states limited to proposing amendments to the United States Constitution that impose fiscal restraints on the Federal Government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the Federal Government and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress; and be it further

 

            RESOLVED: That this application constitutes a continuing application in accordance with Article V of the United States Constitution until the legislatures of at least 2/3 of the several states have made applications on the same subject; and be it further

 

            RESOLVED: That suitable copies of this resolution, duly authenticated by the Secretary of State, be transmitted to the Secretary of the Senate and presiding officers of both houses of the legislatures of each of the several states in the nation, the Speaker and Clerk of the United States House of Representatives, the President and Secretary of the United States Senate and each member of the Maine Congressional Delegation.
