On October 10, 2013, Governor Brown vetoed Assembly Bill 375. AB 375 had proposed to "streamline" the certificated dismissal process, but would have imposed significant burdens on districts that potentially would have made it more difficult to dismiss teachers. Governor Brown specifically acknowledged problems with the ability to amend charges and the limit to five depositions per side.

In his veto message, Governor Brown urged the Legislature and stakeholders to continue working towards a solution that would reduce procedural complexities of the teacher dismissal process.

Opponents of the bill included CSBA and ACSA.
