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

I am returning Assembly Bill 2477 without my signature.

The bill requires campuses of the California State University, and requests campuses of the University of California, to designate a staff member, known as a "Dream Resource Liaison," who is knowledgeable about financial aid and academic opportunities for undocumented students, and also encourages the creation of resource centers for these students.

As I stated in the veto of AB 2009 of 2016, all of our higher education institutions ought to be well-versed in the rights and opportunities available to undocumented students. I further called on our system higher education leaders to ensure that relevant campus personnel can ably fulfill these duties.

UC and CSU have complied by either creating designated physical spaces on campus called Dream Resource Centers, or provided such information through existing student support programs. This bill is not necessary.
