California Gov. Jerry Brown has cleared his desk before leaving for the Democratic National Convention.
He signed 28 bills Monday morning and vetoed two.
Among the new laws is a measure that would allow dogs caught in dog fighting rings to be given a chance at rehabilitation – rather than put to death. The bill received just two "no" votes as it sailed through the Legislature.
Brown vetoed a bill that would have allowed a governor to cancel a special election for a legislative seat if only one candidate qualified for the ballot. In his veto message, the governor said the measure would have excluded write-in candidates.
