Governor Brown saw a productive start to October with the signing of 37 bills this past Monday.

The bills covered a range of issues, including – and feel free to breathe a sigh of relief – AB 390, a measure that makes crossing the street during the numbered countdown legal. Brown also approved five mental health bills, one of which provides funding to state counties for early psychosis and mood disorder detection and intervention services. AB 562, the bill created in response to state auditors’ accusations that the UC’s Office of the President interfered with its investigation, was also signed.
