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

I am returning Senate Bill 341 without my signature.

This bill would increase the number of consecutive terms that a member of a bond citizens'oversight committee may serve, from three two-year terms to six two-year terms.

This bill is a statewide solution to a limited problem. Although a few school districts cite difficulty recruiting community members to serve on their bond oversight committee, this bill could create fewer opportunities for community involvement statewide. This is contrary to the goal of the bond oversight committee, which is to ensure that taxpayers have the opportunity to provide proper oversight of these funds.
