Getting the bill to the Governor

The bill just passed the Senate Judiciary committee 3-1. “Arlin” from Senator Scott’s office explained to me that the next step is the Fiscal committee who meets weekly through August 31. The Senate must approve and reconcile the legislation by September 14 for this fiscal year, then the Governor has 30 days (until October 14 in this case) to exercise his power to veto.

If the Governor signs it or does nothing the bill will become law January 1, 2008.

Getting a meeting with the Governor

I’ve been trying to get a meeting with the Governor the next time he’s in the neighborhood. I figure that if he meets the kids, he’ll have a harder time vetoing our marriage. In addition to writing to him at the Sacramento office, I’ve been trying to grease things with my Senator. (I tried my Assemblymember but his rep said “there are 80 members and [he] can’t do that.”) I’ll let you know how that goes.
