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

I am returning Senate Bill 42 without my signature.

This bill creates the Martins Beach Subaccount in the Land Bank Fund to provide funds to be used for the acquisition of public access along the shoreline near Martins Beach.

Unfortunately, as drafted the bill does not meet the author's intent. This bill precludes the use of eminent domain in this instance and limits the state's options.

Public access to our state beaches and parks is a core value to this state and must be protected. Here however, the public's right to access Martins Beach will be determined in further judicial and administrative proceedings.
