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

I am returning Senate Bill 452 without my signature.

This bill makes various changes to the Beverage Container Recycling Program, which include adjustments to handling fees, processing payments, and convenience zones.

SB 452 is inconsistent with the Administration's principles for reforming and modernizing this program, which was created in 1986. Any legislation to update these statutes should balance three different components: fiscal sustainability, improved collection and incentives for innovative recycling.

This bill does not accomplish any of these goals.
