The fate of stretch limousines in California is in the hands of Gov. Jerry Brown, who has been asked by the Greater California Livery Association to veto a stringent limo retrofit bill requiring additional emergency exits.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The state's limousine industry group is urging Gov. Jerry Brown to veto new legislation that came in response to the deadly San Mateo bridge fire and which calls for emergency exits in new and old limos.
The letter dated Wednesday from the Greater California Livery Association says that the exits could present a danger to passengers by spurring a "massive explosion" and notes the timetable for the upgrades is unrealistic.
