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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2272 without my signature.

This bill would require the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board to adopt a regulation that requires a health facility to remove plume through the use of plume scavenging systems by July 1, 2019.

I agree with the author and sponsor that the potentially hazardous effects of plume merits thorough review. By specifically requiring the adoption of the regulation, however, the bill divests the Standards Board of its discretion to consider a proposed standard for adoption and instead mandates it to do so. This Board was created as an independent body and I believe that independence must be maintained in order for it to effectively perform its mission and protect all California workers.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
