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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2819 without my signature.

This bill requests the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, to conduct a ten-year study on the diversity of the board of directors and employees of United States high technology companies.

This year's Budget provides the Center $1.8 million dollars in funding. I understand the Center will use some of that appropriation to study diversity in the high technology industry. Before committing to a ten-year study, which will require additional UC funding in the future, let's see the initial results of the Center's research and make informed decisions from those findings.
