Governor Gavin Newsom Vetoes SB1

On Friday, September 27, 2019, Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the California Environmental, Public Health, and Workers Defense Act authored by Senate Pro Tem Toni Atkins. “While I disagree about the efficacy and necessity of Senate Bill 1, I look forward to working with the Legislature in our shared fight against the weakening of California’s environmental and worker protections,” stated Governor Newsom in his veto message. SB 1 would have had devastating impacts on how water is managed in California between the State and Federal water projects by creating a roadblock to the adoption of the Voluntary Agreements currently being negotiated.
