Gov. Brown Sticks to Middle--Signs Some Immigrant Measures, Vetoes Others
Listen to the audio:
Gov. Jerry Brown signed 191 bills over the weekend, but he's making news for his action on three pieces of legislation bearing on the lives of unauthorized immigrants in California.
Brown signed a law that will allow hundreds of thousands of young immigrants -- now eligible for work permits under a new federal policy -- to obtain drivers licenses.
