8 outta 9
|Gov. Schwarzenegger signed eight measures into law today and vetoed one, SB 1765 by Sen. Martha Escutia, that would create a reparations fund of sorts for those displaced Mexican-Americans from California between 1929 and 1944.|
Here's part of the veto message.
I am sympathetic to citizens and legal residents of the United States who were impacted by the repatriation efforts within California between 1929 and 1944. A great injustice was done to many. However, broadly drafted legislation that allows private litigation of potentially thousands of claims against the state, local governments, and private citizens is not the answer.
It is only his second veto of the year (by my count).
