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

I am returning Assembly Bill 60 without my signature.

This bill would require certain information to be automatically shared between county welfare departments and local child care contractors to facilitate an effortless transition of families between child care programs. This is a good goal, as any interruption in child care coverage for a family can be devastating, particularly for working parents in the CalWORKS program.

However, this bill impacts an entitlement program and the changes contemplated in this bill have the potential to cost the state $50 million a year and is more properly considered as part of the budget process.
