One bill's enough for a junior pol from LA. And he got the more valuable bill signed by governor - one that brings some parks into his district which he can tout.

I really do hope this is the case.

Hopefully this is the case. I saw the article on the news and it seemed like Gov & DeLeon were awful chummy at the signing...

KFI (AM 640 in LA) actually had DeLeon and AB962 on their news this afternoon - of course no rebuttal or objectivity in it.

A park in a deprived community is something for punk kids to destroy.

Writ large, it's a metaphor for California.

The problem is, doesn't Arnold have to actively do something to kill this bill? If he just sits on it, it just passes, doesn't it? What does it take to get a governor to veto something anyway?

When is DeLeon going to be voted out and/or held on ethics charges? He submits the same bills over and over and IIRC there is a house rule against doing this (but is unenforced).

Isn't the date on the linked page from 2008? How does that affect what's happening now?

You're right, didn't see that initially.

Yup. The Governor cannot pocket veto.

Well I don't think he really cares....that coupled with "ghost voting",etc....here is a article with him ghost voting: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/06/09/MNC6116CF8.DTL&tsp=1

I had a long conversation about this with one of the staffers for my Assemblyman and he said DeLeon has made just enough changes to keep it legit. Couple this with the fact that we have a left wing socialist as speaker and you aren't going to see any reprimands of ole' Kevin any time soon.

Correct, if he does not sign it, it will still go into effect. I am betting that is what he will do. To kill it, he must actively veto it. Does anyone know if the Gov has line item veto power?

Yes, he has line item veto, but I don't think that applies here. I don't believe he can veto one portion of a bill, but allow other parts.

To my knowledge, line item veto is used when dealing with budgets, e.g. he can veto $800 million for schools, but pass $800 million for police. Not used much anymore; most of the budget negotiations are done in backroom deals, so it's basically a useless power for the time being, until someone with cajones gets elected.

Pretty sure Arnold line item vetoed parts of the last budget.
