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

I am returning Senate Bill 56 without my signature.

This bill would allow a retail licensee to return beer, to the wholesaler or manufacturer, for different beer within the same brand.

Current law already allows a retailer to exchange beer for the identical quantity, value, and brand for a host of reasons. Given this existing authority, it is unclear how current law is deficient.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
