He sounds serious. California’s Democrat Governor Jerry Brown says he’ll veto “many” of the 600 or so bills on his desk. Get ready for the “veto blues,” he said.
From the San Francisco Chronicle: Gov. Jerry Brown today fired a warning shot to state lawmakers, essentially telling them the legislation they have worked on for months is not likely to become law.
“I’m going to veto a lot of bills over the next 30 days,” Brown told reporters after an event to reward schools with high physical fitness achievements.
“So I have to say to some, fasten your seat belt cause this is going to be a rough ride. They’ve given me 600 bills and there’s not 600 problems that we need those solutions for,” he said.
I don’t know Brown’s motivation. But I’m guessing he may want to set a first-year standard that he’s in charge, or perhaps that he wants the Legislature to abandon special interest bills. It’s anyone’s guess.
But this I do know – now is the time to increase pro-family citizens’ opposition to the worst bills on his desk in the hope that Brown tags them as “veto bait.” Brown’s veto threats carry more weight that even Arnold Schwarzenegger’s blanket veto threats, which never materialized.
ACT RIGHT NOW
