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

I am returning Assembly Bill 3135 without my signature.

This bill requires the annual Governor's budget, each year for the next five years, to include funding and position authority for additional California Highway Patrol officers. The bill also requires the first priority for Motor Vehicle Account revenues to be the administration and enforcement of laws regulating the use, operation, or registration of vehicles used on streets and highways, including the enforcement of traffic and vehicle laws.

This bill mandates a specific proposal be included in the annual Governor's Budget, which limits the next Governor's discretion in setting forth priorities in this area. Given the bill's ongoing fiscal impact, the annual budget process is the appropriate venue to evaluate this issue.
