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

I am returning Assembly Bill 310 without my signature.

As I stated in the veto of AB 2069 of 2016, the state recognizes the many contributions part-time faculty make in students' lives. Over the last few years, we increased funding for the part-time faculty office hours program by several millions of dollars in ongoing funding and $50 million in one-time funds just a few months ago.

We've also created more opportunities for part-time faculty to become full-time faculty with additional investments totaling over $100 million.

A reporting mandate on top of all this investment is unnecessary.
