Governor's Office

I object to the following appropriations contained in Senate Bill 852.
USED: H:\Prod\Template\Veto-Msg.macm
MACRO USED: H:\Prod\Template\Veto-Msg.macm
Item 0845-001-0217-For support of Department of Insurance. I reduce this item from $182,664,000 to $182,290,000 by reducing:

(2) 12-Consumer Protection from $54,464,000 to $54,090,000.

I am reducing the $749,000 augmentation for implementation of federal mental health parity laws by $374,000 from the Department of Insurance's Consumer Protection program. The augmentation that remains in the Budget will allow the Department to monitor health insurers' compliance with mental health parity laws and other insurance laws.

Item 2720-001-0044-For support of Department of the California Highway Patrol. I reduce this item from $1,857,048,000 to $1,856,348,000 by reducing:

(1) 10-Traffic Management from $1,796,503,000 to $1,795,803,000.

I am reducing the $700,000 augmentation for a teen driver education and safety study. Teen driver education and safety are a high priority for my Administration, and the Transportation Agency is already working with the California Highway Patrol and the Department of Motor Vehicles to develop a comprehensive teen driver education program. Therefore, this increase is unnecessary.

I am deleting Provision 3 to conform to this action.

MACRO USED: H:\Prod\Template\Veto-Msg.macm
Item 3360-403-0033-For support of Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission. I delete this item.

I am deleting this item. It was erroneously included in the Budget Bill. Item 3360-403 already transfers $28 million from the Job Creation Fund to the State Energy Conservation Assistance Account. This action conforms to legislative intent.

Item 4150-001-0933-For support of Department of Managed Health Care. I reduce this item from $60,640,000 to $58,538,000 by reducing:

(1) 30-Health Plan Program from $64,127,000 to $62,025,000.

I am reducing the $4,204,000 augmentation for implementation of federal mental health parity laws by $2,102,000. The $2,102,000 augmentation that remains in the Budget will help the Department in reviewing health plans' compliance with the federal law consistent with the Department's implementation plan. In the coming year, my Administration, through the Department of Managed Health Care, will review health plan filings, and identify any areas of concern and any additional resources needed to address them. The Budget also includes an augmentation that was included in the May Revision for clinical and actuarial contracts that will further help with initial implementation.

MACRO USED: H:\Prod\Template\Veto-Msg.macm
Item 4300-101-0001-For local assistance, Department of Developmental Services. I revise this item by deleting Provisions 5, 6, and 7.

I am deleting Provisions 5, 6, and 7; eliminating the appropriation that would require the Department of Developmental Services to spend funds to review and recommend an update of the core staffing formula for regional centers and rate-setting methodologies for community-based services and supports. This review would create significant workload and cost pressures within a restrictive timeframe. Instead, I am directing the Health and Human Services Agency to convene a task force to review both of these and other community issues that were identified in the Plan for the Future of Developmental Centers in California.

MACRO USED: H:\Prod\Template\Veto-Msg.macm
Item 6110-161-0890-For local assistance, Department of Education. I revise this item by deleting Provision 12.

These changes are technical in nature in order to conform to the Legislature's removal of related language in Item 6110-001-0890.

H:\Prod\Template\Veto-Msg.macm
Item 9480-160-0062-For local assistance, Shared Revenues. I reduce this item from $42,465,000 to $31,502,000.

To correct a technical error in the Budget Bill, I am reducing this item by $10,963,000. This technical veto is consistent with legislative action taken to approve the Highway User Tax Account loan repayment of $100 million to cities and counties. The funds remaining in this item should be allocated by the Controller under Streets and Highways Code section 2104 for county roads.

CRO USED: H:\Prod\Template\Veto-Msg.macm
Item 9490-165-0062-For local assistance, Shared Revenues. I reduce this item from $27,439,000 to $20,355,000.

To correct a technical error in the Budget Bill, I am reducing this item by $7,084,000 to conform to the action I have taken in Item 9480-160-0062. The funds remaining in this item should be allocated by the Controller under Streets and Highways Code section 2107 and 2107.5 for city streets.

ACRO USED: H:\Prod\Template\Veto-Msg.macm
Item 9500-170-0062-For local assistance, Shared Revenues. I reduce this item from $21,701,000 to $16,099,000.

To correct a technical error in the Budget Bill, I am reducing this item by $5,602,000 to conform to the action I have taken in Item 9480-160-0062. The funds remaining in this item should be allocated by the Controller under Streets and Highways Code section 2106 for county roads and city streets.

H:\Prod\Template\Veto-Msg.macm
Item 9505-175-0062-For local assistance, Shared Revenues. I reduce this item from $43,195,000 to $32,044,000.

To correct a technical error in the Budget Bill, I am reducing this item by $11,151,000 to conform to the action I have taken in Item 9480-160-0062. The funds remaining in this item should be allocated by the Controller under Streets and Highways Code section 2105 for city streets and county roads and highways.

With the above deletions, revisions, and reductions, I hereby approve Senate Bill 852.
