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

I am returning Senate Bill 926 without my signature.

This bill defines certain good cause exemptions for CalWORKs and CalFresh recipients who could otherwise be sanctioned for failing to work.

This bill is unnecessary because existing law provides county welfare departments with broad authority to grant good cause exemptions from work requirements to ensure recipients are not unjustly penalized.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
