Governor vetoes bill limiting auto repair subsidies

A bill by State Assemblyman Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, that aimed to save California $7 million by limiting repair subsidies for drivers whose vehicle fails a smog check to only those who qualify as low-income, was vetoed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. In his veto message, the governor said he didn’t want to create a disincentive to “reducing the impact of high polluting vehicles on the road.”
