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

I am returning Senate Bill 246 without my signature.

This bill would allow a homeowner granted an initial base-year property tax valuation transfer claim due to disability to make a second base-year value transfer after they reach the age of 55.

I believe this bill would allow an already generous property tax benefit to be granted a second time on a larger scale. It is not prudent to authorize legislation such as this that would result in unknown long-term costs to the General Fund.
