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

I am returning the following bills without my signature:

AB 1873
AB 2058
AB 2135
SB 987
SB 1455

Each of these bills requires significant information technology programming at the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Reducing wait times in field offices and addressing the urgent needs of customers is the top priority. The programming required to implement these bills will delay the department's ability to fully modernize its aging information technology systems. While these bills may have merit, it would be prudent for the Legislature to pause on additional mandates while the department works to complete programming for prior legislative mandates and system upgrades designed to reduce transaction times and improve customer service.
