Governor's Veto Message












To Members of the California State Senate:

I am returning Senate Bill 1098 without my signature.

This bill would make the provisions of the Miller-Ayala Athlete Agents Act inoperative on July 1, 2011, and would repeal those provisions as of January 1, 2012. The bill would replace the existing law with the Uniform Athlete Agents Act provisions developed by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws. The bill would require athlete agents to register with the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) and require DIR to issue registration certificates based upon the application forms and certificates of other states with similar registration requirements.

Lacking a clear need or rationale, this bill adds a new regulatory oversight function to DIR that is outside of the context of an employer/employee relationship. Even assuming it is necessary to create a new government program and associated costs in this time of fiscal challenge, this program would more appropriately be placed within the Department of Consumer Affairs.

For these reasons I am returning this bill without my signature.

Sincerely,



Arnold Schwarzenegger
