GOVERNOR BROWN ON MOUNTAIN OF LEGISLATION

September 23, 2011

Over the past two weeks, Governor Brown has lamented the voluminous numbers of legislative bills churned out by the legislature. Each year more than 2,500 bills are introduced in the Legislature, with hundreds being sent to the Governor’s Desk.

As part of a Veto Message rejecting a bill that would have criminalized parents of minors who engage in snow sports without a helmet, the Governor wrote, “not every human problem deserves a law.”

More recently, the Governor stated, “There’s a lot of work to be done in this state, and most of the work is just reacting to this legislative machine, which is running out of control.”

So far in 2011 the Governor has signed 463 bills. More than 500 are still awaiting action.
