by Hannah Darden
Assembly Bill 2017, which was written to create a funding stream for California community college mental health programs, was vetoed by Governor Jerry Brown on Sept. 24.
It passed unanimously in both the California State Assembly and Senate during this year’s legislative session, and was sent to the governor’s desk on Sept. 7.
The bill will be returned to the legislature, and a two-thirds vote in each house is required to overrule the veto.
