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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2017 without my signature.

This bill requires the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission to establish a grant program for mental health services at public colleges and universities, subject to a future appropriation.

While well-intentioned, the bill is premature as it commits to a particular program structure without specifying the amount or source of funding. Without this pertinent information, I cannot give this matter full consideration, given the complexities of mental health funding.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
