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

I am returning Senate Bill 1487 without my signature.

This bill establishes the Iconic African Species Protection Act, prohibiting the possession of dead specimens of several African animal species within California.

SB 1487 imposes a state civil penalty for activities expressly authorized by the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

Even though I share the sentiments of the author, this bill, if enacted, would be unenforceable.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
