Ever since Arnold stepped down, Gov Jerry Brown has had a lot of work to do in the most populous state in the United States. How do people living there feel he is doing so far?
Found a few recent tidbits about him, people can read and respond
Seems Jerry signed the DREAM Act into law. Doesn't take place until next year, but it essentially allows people, illegal aliens, to receive funding for school.
"AB130 will partly open doors once closed to bright and talented immigrant students who are undocumented. Together, AB130 and AB131 will facilitate, not guarantee, access to limited funding opportunities for worthy students entering or finishing college. The California DREAM Act does not change a personís immigration status."
So the law helps law breakers? How come the ACLU isn't questioning the constitutional legality of something like this as well?
Here's another bill, but Jerry vetoed this one
Jerry Brown vetoes bill to help elderly, disabled
"Brown vetoed a bill Monday that would have offered an alternative to Adult Day Health Care, which was eliminated under the budget signed last month. Now, funding for the approximately 300 existing centers that offer 37,000 adults medical care, physical therapy, exercise, counseling, socialization and other support will be cut off on Dec. 1.
"Providers, patients and families are scared and angry, and they feel abandoned and marginalized," said Lydia Missaelides, executive director of the California Association for Adult Day Services, who noted that the community-based model that defines Adult Day Health Care is exactly what the federal health care reform envisions."
Now, there could be language in that 2nd bill that makes it in need of some changes, but it certainly will not sit well with numerous people when the first bill I linked did get passed. Many will read that as "Illegal aliens > American citizens" and I can see exactly where they are coming from. So can Gov Brown too I bet.
Is he making any progress in California so far? It's been a while since he was last the Governor in CA.
