VETOED	DATE: 10/07/2005

To the Members of the California State Senate:

I am returning Senate Bill 60 without my signature.

This bill is premature and could undermine national security efforts
to identify individuals who pose enormous risk to the safety of
Californians.  I have repeatedly stated that the ability to verify
documents used to establish an identity must include a way to
determine whether an individual is who he or she purports to be and
must include a criminal background check.

In addition, enacting this bill will result in millions of dollars
being spent on a process that ultimately could conflict with federal
regulations.  Once the federal rule making is finalized, it would be
appropriate to engage in discussions relating to implementation of
the Act, including whether or not a driving only certificate is
appropriate in California.

For these reasons I am unable to sign this bill.
