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

I am returning Assembly Bill 1337 without my signature.

This bill requires the Fish and Game Commission to provide a live video broadcast of its public meetings, including meetings of the Marine Resource Committee, the Wildlife Resources Committee and the Tribal Committee.

Public meetings of the full Commission, where official actions are taken, are already live broadcast. I believe broadcasts of committee level meetings should be reserved only for those times when there is extraordinary interest by the public. This is a matter which properly resides within the sound discretion of the Commission.
