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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2362 without my signature.

This bill establishes health and safety standards for vehicles used by shelters, humane societies, or rescue groups to transport animals.

Creating standards to ensure that animals are safely transported is a noble goal. This bill, however, as currently drafted contains terms that are too vague. I urge the author to come back with clear guidance next year.
