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

I am returning Senate Bill 1057 without my signature.

This bill would require the State Board of Education to adopt history-social science content standards by July 30, 2018.

I agree that providing up to date instructional guidance to educators for use in their classrooms is important. This is precisely why the State Board of Education is currently updating the history-social science framework which is on track to be adopted next spring.

I am concerned that this bill may slow progress that is already underway, and does not include a role for the Instructional Quality Commission.

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