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

I am returning Assembly Bill 318 without my signature.

This bill would require field testing of translated materials for Medi-Cal consumers.

While I share the author's goal of ensuring limited-English proficient consumers have access to readable information about their health care coverage, the bill's requirements would create significant costs that should be evaluated in the annual budget process.

Sincerely,





Gavin Newsom
