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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2534 without my signature.

This bill would create the Hollister Ranch Subaccount within the Land Bank Fund to support establishing public access to the beaches at Hollister Ranch

While well intentioned, this bill relies on the implementation of a coastal access program adopted in 1982. Although this program could have been completed over three decades ago, it was not and it is now outdated.

Before raising any money, as envisioned in this bill, the relevant state agencies should be required to work together to craft a sensible and fiscally responsible plan.
