California governor signs limited amendment to Proposition 65
California governor Jerry Brown recently signed an amendment to Proposition 65 allowing certain businesses (restaurant owners, parking garage owners and owners of premises where smoking is permitted) a 14-day cure period to remedy alleged violations without being subject to civil penalties. This is only the second substantive amendment to Proposition 65 since its adoption by voters in 1986. Efforts at broader reforms have failed for the time being.
