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

I am returning Senate Bills 1176 & 1219 without my signature.

SB 1176 revises the definition of "small business" and "microbusiness" for purposes of the Small Business Procurement and Contract Act. SB 1219 establishes a new procurement preference for employment social enterprises.

While the goal of these bills are well-intentioned, the implementation of these bills require an expensive modification to FI$Cal at a time when the state must focus its resources on the project's successful deployment.
