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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2079 without my signature.

This bill would make numerous changes to the Property Service Worker Protection Act established by AB 1978 (Gonzalez, Ch.373, Stats. of 2016). The Labor Commissioner just recently finished implementing the initial registration requirement and is in the process of promulgating regulations to create the sexual harassment and violence prevention training program required by the Act.

The Author and sponsors of this measure were ahead of their time when they created this program, the first of its kind in the country, two years ago. The Labor Commissioner is still in the early stages of ensuring that this program is successful and lives up to its promise of protecting janitorial workers. We should allow full implementation of this program before proposing significant changes.
