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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2346 without my signature.

This bill directs the California Public Utilities Commission to authorize memorandum accounts for electric corporations to track costs related to wildfires occurring after January 1, 2015. The bill also specifies the types of costs that can be tracked in the accounts.

I recently signed SB 901, which, among other things, establishes rules for tracking and recovering costs for both wildfire mitigation activities and damages resulting from catastrophic wildfires.

This bill is inconsistent with SB 901.
