PHOENIX (AP) - Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed a bill that would have allowed Arizona's 51 crematories and 163 funeral homes to hire intern trainees.

Brewer said in a letter explaining Tuesday's veto of House Bill 2271 that it didn't require enough training and could have unintended consequences if funeral homes employed intern trainees with inadequate training and minimal academic course work.

The bill sponsored by Republican Rep. Tom Forese of Chandler would have allowed anyone who attends or plans to attend a mortuary science college to work as a trainee for up to a year.

The trainee would only be required to complete an 8-hour course that includes universal precautions and could help prepare human remains, help with embalming bodies and perform any task a licensed intern is currently allowed to do.
