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

I am returning Assembly Bill 1906 without my signature.

This bill would require the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), in consultation with the Department of Human Resources, to establish a policy permitting a pregnant peace officer to perform alternate, light duty assignments, as specified, and would require the policy to include specified elements.

CDCR is already implementing a policy allowing staff with medical limitations, including those related to pregnancy, to request light-duty assignments. Because this bill is duplicative of existing efforts, I am unable to sign it.

Sincerely,





Gavin Newsom
