Governor Delivers on Important Vetoes
Last Sunday, at midnight, was the deadline for Governor Jerry Brown to sign or veto a slew of bills. As traditional, he saved many of the more controversial bills to the very end.
Of the 1,217 bills sent to him this year, the Governor vetoed only 201, or approximately 16 percent. Hundreds of new bills became law but the CCC is pleased to report that in the final hours before the signing deadline, Governor Brown vetoed two bills that the CCC had opposed.
