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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2032 without my signature.

If the State Personnel Board fails to issue a decision on a disciplinary appeal within six months, this bill requires the burden of proof to remain with the state employer if the employee pursues court action.

Last year, I signed AB 1062 that requires the Board to issue a decision within the six month timeframe. The law hasn't even been in place a year. Let's give it a little more time before making fundamental changes, as proposed by this bill.
