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

I am returning Assembly Bill 161 without my signature.

This bill prohibits a person from using the title of athletic trainer unless they have received a bachelor's degree and are certified by a national certification body. I vetoed a nearly identical measure last year and continue to believe that the conditions set forth in this bill impose unnecessary burdens on athletic trainers without sufficient evidence that changes are needed.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
