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

I am returning Senate Bill 1415 without my signature.

This bill would require local building and fire inspectors to inspect all private warehouses located within their jurisdiction at least once every five years.

Local officials can already decide what and when to inspect. Some jurisdictions, such as the City of Sacramento, have established a program to monitor vacant buildings. The City of Oakland has a program to conduct frequent inspections of commercial buildings.

Local governments have a better understanding of the type of local inspections needed in their communities. Let's leave these decisions to the sound discretion of local governments.
