24-Hour Dorman: While you were sleeping

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

Gov. Chet Culver wielded his veto pen just before a midnight deadline
last night to take final actions on the work product of the 2009
legislative session. The press release popped on my BlackBerry around
midnight. ... One item that Culver vetoed would have provided more
transparency into how state tax credits for businesses are being used
and whether we.re getting any bang for our bucks. We would have gotten
a list of companies that receive $500,000 in research and development
credits. We could have followed our money. But Culver says that would
prompt a court challenge from companies that want to remain secret
recipients. The governor also signed legislation that will slice
nursing home fines for facilities that self-report errors and make
changes. Advocates for the elderly opposed the legislation.
