BILL NUMBER: AB 1872 VETOED DATE: 09/28/2012 To the Members of the California State Assembly: I am returning Assembly Bill 1872 without my signature. The bill would require family child care homes to serve food in conformance with the federal Child and Adult Care Food Program, which offers reimbursement for meals that meet certain criteria. I can support a measure that helps family child care providers learn about nutrition and serve healthier foods at a lower cost, but this bill goes beyond that. Small businesses such as family day care providers don't need another confusing mandate that adds to their struggles to stay afloat. Sincerely, Edmund G. Brown Jr.
