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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2240 without my signature.

This bill would exempt probation, parole and correctional officers from jury service in criminal trials.

Jury service is a fundamental obligation of citizenship. I am not inclined to expand the list of those exempt simply because of their occupation.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
