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

I am returning Senate Bill 819 without my signature.

This bill confirms existing rules for the California Public Utilties Comission to allow electric and gas corporations to recover costs from ratepayers and prohibits the recovery of fines and penalites.

I recently signed SB 901, which, among other things, establishes specific cost recovery rules for catastrophic wildfire damages incurred by electric corporations and ensures neither electric corportations nor gas corporations can recover fines and penalties from ratepayers.

This bill is inconsistent with SB 901.
