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

I am returning Assembly Bill 247 without my signature.

This bill creates a twenty-one member Lead Advisory Task Force to review and advise on state policies and procedures to reduce childhood lead poisoning and to suggest a regulatory agenda that would identify sources of lead and ensure standards are protective of public health.

The responsibilities of this task force would be duplicative of ongoing work by the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, the Department of Public Health, the State Water Resources Control Board, and the Department of Toxic Substances Control. Coordination and evaluation of procedures to reduce childhood lead poisoning is being accomplished administratively amongst these agencies so there is no reason to divert resources to a task force.
