Governator Abandons Mass Veto Threat

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger called off his mass veto threat yesterday, saying Democratic and Republican leaders had made significant progress in solving the state’s water problems. The governor then called a special legislative session to deal with the water issues, which include proposals to build a large peripheral canal around the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta and construct a series of new dams. The governor had threatened to veto more than 700 bills late last week if the legislative leaders didn’t reach a water deal.
