Jerry Brown veto message

Man, I like Jerry Brown. I just read this in SF Gate:

[Governor Jerry] Brown [vetoed] a measure by state Sen. Tom Harman, R-Huntington Beach (Orange County), that would have required the Department of Parks and Recreation to post on its website information about parks scheduled for closure and how nonprofits or other groups could contact the department to potentially take over the management of the park.

Brown wrote in his veto message that the bill was "a good idea but not one that needs a law. What the parks do need is sufficient funding to stay open - something I feel compelled to note the author and his colleagues refused to let the people vote on."
