|Governor’s Veto Message
|To the Members of the California State Assembly:
I am returning the following bills without my signature:
These bills would require the Natural Resources Agency to develop and implement community parks access grant programs.
While I support an integrated and cohesive effort to make parks and greenspaces accessible to all throughout our State, and to that end signed Assembly Bill 209, I cannot support the creation of these stand-alone grant programs.
