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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2994 without my signature.

This bill requires the Division of the State Architect to develop and propose to the California Building Standards Commission, updated standards on the required number of ambulatory accessible stalls in public restrooms.

California's existing accessibility standards exceed the federal requirements and are often regarded as a national model. This bill requires the State Architect to review the existing standards, and regardless of the outcome, provide additional ones. I don't think that's warranted.
