VETOED	DATE: 09/30/2010

To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 1680 without my signature.

This bill would prohibit businesses from being able to enter into
contracts that require disputes to be resolved through arbitration.
Arbitration has evolved into a productive and useful method for
resolving disputes.  It allows parties the opportunity to resolve
cases faster than traditional litigation and without incurring the
enormous expenses associated with going to court.

Since this measure limits the ability of parties to use arbitration,
I am unable to sign this bill.
