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

I am returning Senate Bill 1005 without my signature.

This bill would require that compensation provided by the California Victims Compensation Board for relocation expenses include pet deposits and additional rent if the victim has a pet.

The Board currently provides compensation for these purposes. Other specific costs that are included within compensable relocation expenses are not individually enumerated in the authorizing statute. I don't see any need to do so now.
