Okay, so Governor Schwarzenegger is refusing to sign any bills into law until the Legislature gets its act together in terms of finalizing the state budget for this upcoming fiscal year.
But in order for Proposition 1 (the high speed rail bond measure) to be revised into Proposition 1A for the November ballot, thereby incorporating positive, reconciliatory changes from Galgiani’s bill AB 3034 into the ballot measure, the Assembly must approve the Senate’s version, and the Governor must sign the bill by Monday, August 11. That is in two days.
Any resident of California reading this post is highly encouraged to complete the following two easy and painless steps, before continuing on with activities planned for this weekend:
1. Get in touch with your Assemblymember and urge them to approve the Senate’s revisions to AB 3034, so that the bill makes it to the Governor’s desk in a timely fashion.
2. Contact the Governor: by email, by phone (916-445-2841), or by fax (916-558-3160), and urge him to sign AB 3034 into law by Monday, August 11.
UPDATE (11 August 2008): Read this post.
