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

I am returning Senate Bill 1416 without my signature.

This bill allows, until January 1, 2024, cities and counties to recover fines related to nuisance abatement through liens and special assessments.

I vetoed a similar bill in 2011 because I was concerned that allowing local governments to collect fines by assessing them against an owner's property reduced important due process protections. My thoughts on the matter have not changed.
