Governor Vetoes Heat Illness Measures
Ag Council thanks Governor Jerry Brown for using his veto pen to reject both heat illness bills pending on his desk, AB 2346 (Butler) and AB 2676 (Calderon).
The bills were unnecessary given that our state has a heat illness regulation already in place that is saving lives, and the existing regulation is supported by agriculture. Ag Council and many other ag and business organizations worked to advocate for the vetoes. Read more details about our message to the Governor in the letters below.
Thank you to all of our members who reached out to the Governor to assist in this advocacy effort. If you would like to thank the Governor for the vetoes, please send him an email HERE.
