No surveillance cameras in nursing home rooms after Whitmer pocket veto

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer opted not to sign a bill allowing nursing home residents to install surveillance cameras in their own rooms. Senate Bill 77, sponsored by Sen. Jim Runestad, R-White Lake, would have allowed electronic monitoring in a residents’ room with their permission, or shared permission if the room is shared. Runestad and other Republican co-sponsors pushed the bill so residents could have a check against potential abuse.
