Harter Vetoes Pot, Internet Connections
A couple of vetoes from La Crosse mayor Matt Harter this week. Harter has said no to the $25 dollar per council member reimbursement for internet service. He's also vetoed an ordinance that would have allowed police to ticket for pot possession. Not because he thinks the measure lacks merit. The mayor says he just wants to be sure no one's confused about the ordinance. And he wants the public to be clear that a similar ordinance would not be less than what state law already allows for. Also, Harter says he wanted to avoid the impression that the city was taking the criminality out of illicit drug use.
