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

I am returning Senate Bill 1151 without my signature.

This bill boosts funding for school zone safety projects by increasing fines for even minor traffic violations occurring within school zones from $237 to $366.

Increasing traffic fines as the method to pay transportation fund activities is a regressive increase that affects poor people disproportionately. Making safety improvements in school zones is obviously important, but not by increasing traffic fines.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
