CA Recall

Tallying up the Vetoes

You read that right. Tallying up the vetoes, not the votes. I’ve been enjoying regular visits to Daniel Weintraub’s California Insider for his Daily Veto feature (description of the bill, with the written explanation explaining why Schwarzenegger decided to veto the bill in question).
