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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2573 without my signature.

This bill allows a beer manufacturer to give up to five cases of glassware to an on-sale retail licensee.

Allowing beer manufacturers to give items of value to on-sale retail licensees could unduly influence such retailers to purchase those manufacturers' products. I also worry that this law creates an economic disadvantage for small beer manufactures who might not be able to provide free glassware in the same manner as the larger manufacturers.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
