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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2790 without my signature.

This bill would create an Office of Internal Audits at the California Department of Veterans Affairs, led by a chief auditor, to conduct programmatic and financial reviews, as well as investigate allegations of employee misconduct.

The bill will result in significant ongoing costs to the General Fund. Additional spending to support new programs, including the creation of an internal audits unit within the Department, must be considered through the annual budget process.
