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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2652 without my signature.

This bill would require the California Public Utilities Commission to revise and adopt specific rules pertaining to enrollment and recertification of California LifeLine Program participants.

The Commission currently has an open proceeding on the Lifeline Program with a goal of developing reforms to reduce burdens on individuals who want to enroll in the Program. This process is public, deliberative and is the best venue to address necessary Program adjustments.
