Governor : Bills Signed:

September 24, 1987| Compiled by Jerry Gillam, Times staff writer

Insurance: AB 231 by Assemblyman William H. Lancaster (R-Covina) permits the state insurance commissioner to order insurance companies to form a temporary pool to provide commercial liability insurance to business firms and cities and counties if coverage is not available.

Alzheimer's: AB 1865 by Assemblyman William J. Filante (R-Greenbrae) allows taxpayers to make contributions for support of research into Alzheimer's disease by designating an amount to be taken from their state income tax refunds.

Children: SB 1054 by Sen. John Seymour (R-Anaheim) prevents a parent who has abducted a child from going to court in a new state and obtaining a custody order. Bills Vetoed:

Interest: AB 2575 by Assemblyman Charles M. Calderon (D-Alhambra) would have extended through 1990 the state law that establishes 19.2% as the top interest charge on revolving retail installment accounts. The veto means the rate will drop to 18% next year. The governor said the lower rate would save consumers an estimated $60 million to $72 million annually.

Carcinogens: AB 474 by Assemblyman Burt Margolin (D-Los Angeles) would have required the state Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board to revise its code within six months to protect public employees from exposure to any cancer-causing chemicals on the governor's list, prepared as a result of the voter-approved Proposition 65. The governor said it was "unrealistic" to expect the board to develop standards within that time period.

CPR: SB 977 by Sen. Herschel Rosenthal (D-Los Angeles) would have appropriated $100,000 from the state general fund to establish a two-year pilot program in cardiopulmonary resuscitation education for high schools in Los Angeles and Sacramento counties. The governor said he agrees that CPR has a place in high school health classes, but he also believes the pilot programs can be carried out within existing school financial resources.
