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

I am returning Senate Bill 467 without my signature.

This bill requires law enforcement agencies to obtain a search warrant when seeking access to electronic communications. Federal law currently requires a search warrant, subpoena or court order to access this kind of information and in the vast majority of cases, law enforcement agencies obtain a search warrant.

The bill, however, imposes new notice requirements that go beyond those required by federal law and could impede ongoing criminal investigations. I do not think that is wise.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
