Schwarzenegger issued a statement explaining his veto of Senate Bill 20, a bill that would imposed additional requirements on entities issuing data breach notifications. According to his statement the bill was unnecessary because "there is no evidence that there is a problem with the information provided to
consumers. Moreover, there is no additional consumer benefit gained by requiring the Attorney General to become a repository of breach notices when this measure does not require the Attorney General to do
anything with the notices."
