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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2169 without my signature.

This bill reduces the period of time following the expiration of a vehicle lease or rental agreement from 5 days to 48 hours before the person who has leased the vehicle is presumed to have embezzled the vehicle.
I understand the importance of enabling car rental companies to protect against those who steal their cars. In this case, however, I believe there are other solutions available that would work better, such as the increased use of GPS technology.
