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

I am returning Assembly Bill 500 without my signature.

This bill requires K-12 schools, charter schools and community college districts to provide certificated, classified, and academic employees at least six weeks of leave with full pay for pregnancy or a related condition in addition to any and all other available leaves of absence.

Providing every California worker with paid family leave is a noble goal and a priority for my administration. However, this bill will likely result in annual costs of tens of millions of dollars that should be considered as part of the annual budget process and as part of local collective bargaining. Moreover, this proposal should be considered within the broader context of the Paid Family Leave Task Force, which is assessing increased paid family leave for all of California's workers.

Sincerely,





Gavin Newsom
