BILL NUMBER:  SB 759
  VETOED	DATE: 07/15/2011




To the Members of the California State Senate:

I am returning Senate Bill 759 without my signature.

Under this bill, homeowners associations that govern Common Interest
Developments would be forced to approve the installation of Astro
Turf.  The decision about choosing synthetic turf instead of natural
vegetation should be left to individual homeowners associations, not
mandated by state law.  For this reason, I am returning this bill.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
