 Sacramento, CA – After receiving requests from Senate Minority Leader Brian Jones (R-San Diego), Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed six bad bills sent to him by California Democrat legislators. 

“I urged the governor to veto several bad bills passed by the Legislature this year and I thank him for listening to my requests,” said Leader Jones. “I’m always glad to see bipartisan leadership on important issues.”

Below is a list of bills the governor vetoed after receiving requests from Leader Jones:

SB 58 (Wiener) – A dangerous measure that would have decriminalized the personal use of specified hallucinogens (psychedelic drugs) starting in January 2025.
