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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2054 without my signature.

This bill would make it unlawful for any person to use the state park reservation system to buy reservations and resell them without approval from the Department of Parks and Recreation.

When the Department first launched its online reservation system, it did not anticipate that internet bots would buy reservations in bulk and resell them at higher prices. Since the launch, the Department has added software to prevent internet bots from accessing reservations and staff continually monitors the site for unusual activity. I do not believe a new crime is needed for a problem that has been solved.
