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

I am returning Assembly Bill 1662 without my signature.

This bill requires hobbyist drone operators to provide, at the scene of an accident caused by their drone, their name and home address along with valid identification.

Rather than creating a new misdemeanor crime, I believe it would be fairer and more effective to explore a more comprehensive approach that takes into account federal regulations on this subject. Piecemeal is not the way to go.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
