  • CA Legislative Process

    In case anyone is wondering how a bill becomes law in CA, see the link below:

    I wonder how many days are left before AB1500 extending white sticker carpool access becomes law?

    From www|statescape|com/resources/Governors/GovSignDeadline.asp

    During session, governor must sign or veto legislation within 12 days of the day of transmittal, or it becomes law without signature. However, if the 12th day is a Sunday or a holiday, governor has until next working day to act. Governor has until September 30 to sign or veto legislation in his/her possession on the day legislature adjourns (usually August 31), or legislation becomes law without signature.

    From totalcapitol|com/?bill_id=200920100AB1500

    June 23, 2010 - Enrolled and to the Governor at 2:30 p.m.

    So, by my calculations, Arnold has to sign (or not act) by July 6th as the 5th is a holiday.
