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

I am returning the following bills without my signature.

AB 2305
AB 2886
AB 3034

These bills expand the Public Employment Relations Board's jurisdiction to cover labor disputes involving several local public agencies.

Over the years, the Legislature has expanded the Board's jurisdiction, but the necessary funding for the increased workload has not kept pace. This has resulted in significant backlogs at the Board - both labor and employers have complained about this problem. This Administration has recently increased the Board's funding to help correct this problem. The Board's jurisdiction should not be expanded again until the Board's ability to handle its previously expanded caseload is established.
