BILL NUMBER: SB 744 VETOED DATE: 10/12/2013 To the Members of the California State Senate: I am returning Senate Bill 744 without my signature. This bill imposes new and rather specific requirements on the way local schools handle disruptive students. The recently enacted Local Control Funding Formula has created a new regime of greater equity and increased accountability at the local level. I'm putting my trust in the skill and good faith of local educators to manage the issues that are the subject of this bill in a caring and responsible way. Sincerely, Edmund G. Brown Jr.
