PHOENIX -- Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed a bill allowing partnerships, LLCs and some corporations get tax credits for contributing to school tuition organizations.

The governor said in a letter explaining Thursday's veto of House Bill 2617 that she is concerned about extra burdens the law as now written places on the state revenue department. She says she ``is committed'' to having her administration work with sponsor Rep. Justin Olson to fix the problems in the next legislative session.

School tuition organizations accept donations from individuals who get tax credits. They then assign the money to private school students to help pay for tuition.
