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

I am returning Assembly Bill 3085 without my signature.

This bill would establish a new grant program at the Department of Community Services and Development to fund local employment programs for homeless individuals.

This year's budget includes approximately $5 billion in funding related to housing and homelessness including $500 million to local governments. Additional funding through a new homelessness grant program should be contemplated in next year's budget process.
