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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2720 without my signature.

This bill-contingent upon future passage of a constitutional amendment- allows counties to use any unexpended Juvenile Reentry Grant allocation to provide rehabilitative services for reentry youth who have been discharged from the jurisdiction of the juvenile court within the prior two years.

The 2011 Public Safety Realignment funding that this bill seeks to repurpose is constitutionally protected. While the proponents may well have creative and positive ideas for improving re-entry services for system-involved youth, these decisions under current law rest with local authorities and cannot be changed without a constitutional amendment.
