"While I appreciate the value of wearing a ski helmet, I am concerned about the continuing and seemingly inexorable transfer of authority from parents to the state. Not every human problem deserves a law."Brown also referred to the law as "nanny government".
And yet he had no problem signing the bill that required the teaching of gay history in elementary classrooms. I guess we can't trust parents to get that right.
He also vetoed a bill raising the fines for texting while driving. I thought that one would have sailed through. I wonder of the governor is alright?
