Monday is the last day Gov. Arnold Schwartzenegger can veto AB2581 that would ban censorship of student newspapers at public colleges and universities. The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, was approved by the Assembly and Senate. Under California law, the governor has 12 business days to sign or veto the bill. If he fails to do either, the bill becomes law without his signature. The 12th day is Monday.
