California Governor Jerry Brown has rejected a bill that would give redevelopment agencies more flexibility in dealing with changes in this year’s budget. In his veto message, Brown wrote that he’s waiting for the state Supreme Court to rule on whether the budget’s redevelopment changes are constitutional.
Brown also signed a measure that requires a crime victim’s family to be notified at least 10 days before a pardon or sentence commutation is granted. Monday’s 16 signed bills and three vetoes are on top of another flurry the governor released over the weekend.
The governor has until midnight Sunday to act on the 400 or so measures that remain on his desk.
