    Governor Brown signed into law yesterday Assembly Bill 433 and Assembly Bill 887.

    Assembly Bill 433, also known as the Vital Statistics Modernization Act, ushers in a faster and more competent system for individuals to update their birth certificate. This new process will make it easier for transgendered individuals to have a birth certificate that accurately reflects their "clinically appropriate treatment."

    Assembly Bill 887, known as the Gender Nondiscirmination Act, beefs up civil rights protections, especially for the transgendered persons.

    Additionally, California Governor Brown signed Seth's Law, which strengthens California's anti-bullying policies.

    However, Brown did veto SB 416, the Survey Data Inclusion Act.

    SB 416 would add questions regarding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, domestic partnership status and the gender of a spouse as voluntary demographic information collected in specified California statewide surveys by 2013

    His reason for the veto is that:

    this matter "is better handled" by the "rigorous and thoughtful process" that exists for making those determinations, rather than "the Legislature and Governor."

    Since elected into office, Governor Brown has signed into law 10 out of 12 bills sponsored by Equality California.

    I know about the DREAM Act, but this is the Gay News & Events section icon_biggrin.gif

    Edited to add:

    And it's not just any illegal alien who can receive state taxpayer funds. There are eligibility requirements.

    And from my experience they like to cheat on their boyfriends, try to have sex with me without a condom, and refer to me as "papi" instead of my real name.
