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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2026 without my signature.

This bill requires a person licensed by the Department of Motor Vehicles as a salesperson for a used car dealer to complete an education program prior to being hired and every three years thereafter.

While it is obviously important that used car salespersons understand relevant laws and regulations, this bill is unnecessary.

Car dealers are already required to be knowledgeable of applicable laws and to see to it that their sales staff follow the rules. Additionally, I am not a fan of mandating pre-packaged, four-hour continuing education courses which will never substitute for effective supervision.
