BILL NUMBER:  AB 2217
  VETOED	DATE: 09/24/2010




To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 2217 without my signature.

This bill would require courts to provide specific admonishments to
jurors about communication through electronic and wireless devices.
This bill is unnecessary.  Existing law already sufficiently deals
with communications among jurors.  Moreover, this type of
admonishment is better handled through court rules rather than by
statute.

For these reasons, I am unable to sign this bill.

Sincerely,



Arnold Schwarzenegger
