Schwarzenegger Does the Right Thing…

Milk 2 It's amazing what can be accomplished when a Governor needs to court votes. Late last night, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the Harvey Milk Day, out-of-state marriages bill and domestic violence protection bill.

However, Schwarzenegger vetoed AB 1185 (Lieu), which Equality California legislative director, Alice Kessler described as “a simple bill allowing better access to birth certificates for transgender people.” He also vetoed AB 382 (Ammiano), which would have established protections for LGBT prisoners, which he said was “unnecessary.”

The Harvey Milks Day bill - AB 2567  requires “the governor proclaim May 22 each year as Harvey Milk Day. It would encourage public schools and educational institutions to conduct suitable commemorative exercises on that date.” It does not make it a state holiday.

  1. What the hell do you mean he did the right thing?? Passing the Harvey Milk Holiday just gets the LGBT community to pat him on the back, when he should have passed both AB 1185 and AB 382!!!!! I can’t change my passport and am subjected to harassment every time I have to use my ID!! Buying beer or cigarettes, getting stopped by cops, every time I fly, cross a border, I will remember the asshole Arnold Schwarzenegger!
