Wyoming Governor Matt Mead has vetoed a genetic privacy bill approved by lawmakers because of concerns about an amendment that he says could cause some unintended results.

Senate File 31 would require informed consent for testing, disclosing, obtaining or retaining anyone's genetic information.

In a letter to Senate President Eli Bebout explaining why he vetoed the bill, the governor calls the bill's intent "an important goal and one I fully support."

But he says the amendment he objects to could prevent universities and other research or testing facilities from using a third party to store or back up genetic testing data.

It would take a 2/3 majority vote of both houses of the legislature to over-ride the veto. In his letter, the governor said the problem he saw with the bill "may be easily corrected next year." The 2017 legislative session is expected to wrap up on Friday, March 3.
