Governor Jerry Brown Signs 26 Bills, Vetoes 3

(Sacramento, CA)
Monday, September 17, 2012
The Governor signed 26 bills in all.
 
Under one new law, protestors must be at least 300 feet away from a funeral and on public property.
 
Governor Brown vetoed similar legislation last year citing a Supreme Court decision that said the first amendment protects funeral protests. 
 
But last year's bill was more restrictive and would have required protestors to be 1000 feet away.
 
The Governor also vetoed three bills, including one that would have added a dollar fine to a traffic ticket.
 
The money raised would have gone to fund a program for spinal cord injury research at the University of California.
 
In his veto message, Governor Brown said fines should be based on reasonable punishment, not paying for more general fund activities.
