Governor's Veto Message

To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 1164 without my signature.

While I support efforts to improve the quality of child care services and have provided increased state funding to expand access to subsidized child care, I can not support this bill as it has the potential to add significant fiscal pressures to the State’s structural budget deficit. Family child care homes currently receive prevailing market rates for their services. They are reimbursed for the state-subsidized families they serve at the same rate as that paid by the non-subsidized families they serve.

Changes in the current reimbursement structure, increases in family child care provider reimbursement rates, expanded provider training efforts, or other program enhancements could come at the expense of the number of available child care slots. In light of the current structural budget deficit, it is imperative that we balance our fiscal reality and the need to provide services to working families.

For these reasons, I am unable to sign this bill.
