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

I am returning Senate Bill 318 without my signature.

While I agree it is important for the California State University (CSU) to make prudent contracting decisions, CSU's union contracts already address the issue of outsourcing in the collective bargaining process.

As such, I don't see the need at this point to further rigidify this process.

I would, however, urge both the Trustees and the Chancellor's office to make every effort to ensure that CSU's contracts are well-justified, well-executed and perform as anticipated.
