Governor’s Final Actions Mixed on League Priority Bills

Governor Signs 17 of League’s 21 Requested Signatures; Vetoes Five of 11 Requests

Gov. Jerry Brown finished his work yesterday signing and vetoing legislation sent to him by the Legislature in 2015. Major positives for the League this year were his signatures on AB 2 (Alejo), which establishes a new economic development tool for poorer communities, and the medical marijuana regulatory bill package AB 243 (Wood), AB 266 (Bonta, Cooley, Jones-Sawyer, Lackey and Wood), and SB 643 (McGuire). Disappointments included the veto of AB 35 (Chiu and Atkins), which would have increased the availability of affordable housing tax credits by $100 million, and his signature on several measures which erode local land use and contracting flexibility.
