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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2838 without my signature.

This bill establishes a 60-day limit to the existing requirement for the Department of Justice to review and comment on any proposed amendment to a local gambling ordinance relating to cardrooms, before the ordinance is adopted by the local jurisdiction.

While the bill is intended to reduce the time for the Department to respond to local jurisdictions on proposed amendments to local gambling ordinances, the Department's average response time is 30 days. This bill is a solution in search of a problem -- not needed.
