Governor Vetoes Transcript Increase Bill
COCRA will update members and supporters as to any future action to revive another transcript increase bill or an attempt to address the increase via the budget process as stated by the Governor.
Governor Brown released a brief statement yesterday stating his reasons for his refusal to sign AB 2629. Below is the text of his statement in full.
“To the Members of the California State Assembly:
I am returning Assembly Bill 2629 without my signature.
This bill would increase the fee that court reporters can charge for a court proceeding transcript.
This bill results in additional pressure to the General Fund by increasing costs to the judicial system. It covers spending that is more appropriately considered during the budget process.”
Edmund G. Brown.
