William Foster, Governor's Office
From guns to toys, Governor Schwarzenegger has taken action on hundreds of bills. He had until Sunday night to sign or veto the legislation.
The Governor gave the go-ahead to a controversial, first-in-the-nation bill that requires semi-automatic guns to leave a unique imprint on bullets – called micro-stamping. Car registration fees will go up to help pay for clean air programs under another bill the Governor signed. He also gave the o-k to a measure banning a softening agent used in toddlers’ toys that’s been linked to cancer. Another requires the state’s pension funds to divest from companies that do business with Iran. He also signed a bill making it legal to sell kangaroo leather products in California.
Among the notable vetoes: a bill that would have required chain restaurants to list nutritional information on menus, and another that would have allowed undocumented students to receive state financial aid.
