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

I am returning AB 2531 without my signature.

This bill would require the Court Reporters Board of California to identify a certification process and adopt standards for operators of computer-aided transcription systems.

I understand the importance of ensuring the deaf and hard of hearing have equal access to our judicial system. The burdens imposed on the Board by this bill, without authority for proper enforcement or funding, would make it difficult to achieve the author's stated goal. Also, I don't believe there has been sufficient evidence provided to warrant a new certification process for these operators.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
