Schwarzenegger Veto Notes: Priceless

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is using his veto pen to push back on some bills that legislators passed ...

On Thursday, he attached this veto message to Assembly Bill 2418, which would have removed the apostrophe in the “Contractors’ State License Law.”

To the Members of the California State Assembly: I am returning AB 2419 without my signature …

-Number of legislative committees that took time hearing this bill: 3

-Number of pages in this bill needed to remove an apostrophe: 184

-Taxpayer dollars used to pass this bill through the Legislature: $ thousands and thousands.

-The outrage the public should have that the Legislature is spending its time “working” on bills like this instead of focusing on California’s real problems: PRICELESS.

The author of the punctuation legislation, Republican Assemblyman Paul Cook, was not amused with Schwarzenegger’s note.

“He was certainly disappointed that the governor chose to veto the measure and in particular with the tone of his veto message,” said Sam Cannon, Cook’s chief of staff.

And what is the point of removing the apostrophe, except to cater to the growing minions who don’t know when to use one?

I’m sick of carrying a Driver License.

It would appear to me the apostrophe belongs there — are you saying it does not?
