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

I am returning Assembly Bill 787 without my signature.

Under this bill, beginning January 1, 2017, a charter school could not "operate as" or be "operated by" a for-profit corporation.

I don't believe the case has been made to eliminate for-profit charter schools in California. Moreover, the somewhat ambiguous terms used in this bill could be interpreted to restrict the ability of non-profit charter schools to continue using for-profit vendors.

For these reasons, I am unable to sign AB 787.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
