BILL STATUS: VETOED ON 10/04/2011 BY GOVERNOR BROWN
VETO MESSAGE - To the Members of the California State Assembly: I am returning Assembly Bill 1182 without my signature. This bill would allow a person applying for welfare to have one car, or possibly more, of any value, rather than a maximum value of $4,650 under current law. In the last year, the state has been forced to make steep reductions in many programs, including the state's welfare-to-work program. As we go into the new year, we may have to make additional cuts. Until we better understand the fiscal outlook, we should not be making changes of this kind.
Sincerely, Edmund G. Brown Jr.
