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.
