Gov. Jerry Brown has been signing -- and vetoing -- a flurry of bills in recent weeks. In January, new laws will go into effect that will grant licenses to some undocumented immigrants, ban therapies designed to turn gay people straight and give some prisoners with life sentences a chance at a new sentence. The governor vetoed the so-called Trust Act, that would have shielded some immigrants from deportation, and a bill that would have granted rights to domestic workers. We discuss the scores of new laws and the ones the governor has rejected.
