SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday signed a bill requiring limousines that operate in California to have emergency exits, but vetoed another bill requiring annual Highway Patrol limo inspections, saying it fails to properly pay for them.
The bills were introduced after two recent limousine fires including one in May that killed five trapped women on a San Francisco Bay Area bridge.
