Every bill is important to some constituency, but some bills – such as the driver’s license for immigrants bill and the package of bills promoting importation of prescription drugs from Canada – are the focus of continuing strong lobbying efforts. The governor’s deputy press secretary Ashley Snee says Schwarzenegger must make roughly fifty bill decisions a day between now and September thirtieth. CUT: Snee14 :14 Snee says there is no conscious attempt to save the most controversial bills for last. Once the governor completes his end-of-session bill signing duties, he is expected to switch immediately in October into campaign mode, with possible battlefield state rallies for President Bush as Election Day approaches.
