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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2592 without my signature.

When considering the allocation of racing dates, the California Horse Racing Board actively solicits feedback from the horseracing community and the public at large. Often, spirited discussions occur at the hearings of the full Board, or in the smaller expert subcommittees. I am confident that the Commissioners consider all competing proposals before voting.

Mandating a specific economic analysis before a decision could be made would add substantial costs to an already complex process without commensurate benefit.

Sincerely,


Edmund G. Brown Jr.
