SACRAMENTO -- In a move to head off election fraud, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation Monday requiring county registrars to send a card to voters notifying them when papers have been filed to change their party affiliation. Assemblyman Juan Arambula (D-Fresno) wrote the bill after a controversy last year in which workers were paid to register new Republicans in Orange County.

Abel Maldonado (R-Santa Maria) as lieutenant governor turned into a drawn-out, five-hour affair that could wind up being decided in the courts. In the end, the Assembly failed to confirm Maldonado's nomination. He received 37 votes in favor of his confirmation and 35 votes against confirmation. All but one of the Assembly's Republican members voted for his promotion. Only eight members of the 49-member Democratic caucus voted to support Maldonado.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday vetoed a pair of bills aimed at curbing theft by employers of wages paid to hourly workers. The most controversial of the two measures, backed by the California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation, would have created a new misdemeanor crime for employers that willfully fail to pay all wages within 90 days after a worker leaves. A second bill would have increased the maximum amount of damages that a worker could be awarded in a wage-related legal dispute or state enforcement action.

State lawmakers failed Thursday to act on a clutch of their top-priority bills, including those involving water, prisons and energy, leaving a logjam of controversial measures to be resolved by midnight tonight, the end of this year's session. After a long and heated debate, the Assembly passed a last-minute proposal to waive environmental hurdles for a new NFL stadium near L.A. That measure was sent to the Senate for consideration today. But political disputes and procedural snags left a host of other measures -- many of which have been debated all year -- unresolved with 24 hours left on the clock, including: Twin bills that would require 33% of the state's energy to come from solar, wind and geothermal sources by 2020 -- a top priority of Democratic legislative leaders and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
