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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2360 without my signature.

This bill requires the California Department of Education to collaborate with the Department of Food and Agriculture to develop "best practices" to facilitate partnerships between school districts and food banks that increase pupil access to healthy foods when school is not in session.

Healthy foods for kids is obviously a good idea, but schools can already easily establish relationships with local food banks -- without state guidance.

Given the fact that local school districts are governed by democratically elected trustees, it is important and utterly appropriate for the state to limit its intervention only to those situations that cannot be handled by local authorities.
