Governor's Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 306 without my signature.

This bill requires the California Energy Commission to fund research on "piezoelectric transducers" out of the Public Goods Charge.

The Legislature, by requiring the funding of this specific technology, is bypassing the independent and careful process of the Energy Commission. I don't think that's a good idea.

I note that this bill-appropriating funds from the Public Good Charge - received broad bipartisan support. The legislation to authorize this funding source unfortunately did not.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
