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

I am returning Assembly Bill 221 without my signature.

This bill requires the Department of Motor Vehicles to study the feasibility of creating a "digital driver license" for smartphones and report the results to the Legislature no later than December 1, 2016.

While the idea of a digital license sounds innovative, it poses numerous technical difficulties. Given the many new responsibilities that the Department of Motor Vehicles is already dealing with, I don't believe this bill is advisable.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
