    Posted: October 20, 2017 | Posted by Crystal Whitfield | No Comments

    Sunday was the final night for the Governor to sign or veto bills on his desk.  In 2017 the Legislature sent 977 bills to his desk.  He signed 88% of the bills (859) and vetoed 12% (118).

    Last year, Governor Brown vetoed 159 out of 1059 bills, for a 15% veto rate.  To put this year’s actions in context (lowest year to highest year of vetoes):

    Between 2011 and 2016, Governor Brown vetoed between 10.7% and 15% of the bills

    Between 2004 and 2010, Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed between 22.3% and 35% of the bills

    Between 1999 and 2003, Governor Davis vetoed between 6% and 25% of the bills

    Between 1991 and 1998, Governor Wilson vetoed between 8.6% and 24.5% of the bills

    Now, here are some of the bills we followed closely.
