Acting on bad or premature information, I tweeted that Jerry Brown had signed AB 1371 into law on Thursday afternoon. This is the Three Feet for Safety Act recently passed in the California legislature. About a hundred people retweeted or repeated this information.
It turns out I was incorrect. I called bill author Steven Bradford’s office, and they informed me that 1371 is still awaiting action from the Governor.
Again: California’s Three Feet for Safety Act has not been signed into law.
I apologize for the false alarm; I’ll be sure to check with the horse’s mouth directly before reporting any political action on AB 1371.
