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

I am returning Assembly Bill 603 without my signature.

This bill would require municipalities to annually post on their internet websites specified information relating to settlements and judgments resulting from allegations of improper police conduct. The information will include amounts paid, broken down by individual settlement and judgment, and information on bonds used to finance use of force settlement and judgment payments.

The vast majority of the information that this legislation would require to be posted on department websites is already available through a Public Records Act request or in court records. Given this, I am concerned that this legislation is not only unnecessary, but that it will also have potentially significant General Fund costs associated with the imposition of a state-reimbursable mandate on local law enforcement agencies.


Sincerely,





Gavin Newsom
