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

I am returning Assembly Bill 1479 without my signature.

This bill requires public agencies designate a person or office to act as the agency's custodian of records to respond to any California Public Records Act request.

I am not convinced this bill would have any measurable impact on the speed or accuracy in responding to Public Record Act requests. While I am open to future discussions about strengthening public record disclosures for all branches of California government, this bill has the potential to further confuse an already complex process.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
