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.
