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

I am returning Assembly Bill 79 without my signature.

This bill would require the State Air Resources Board to update the inputs or methodology for calculating greenhouse gas emissions of unspecified energy sources.

This bill is unnecessary and interferes with the implementation of existing law passed just last year that requires the California Energy Commission, in consultation with the State Air Resources Board, to adopt a methodology for the calculation of greenhouse gas emissions intensity for all electricity purchases.
