Governor Endorses Abortion Restriction And Drug Industry Measures
Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger has announced his support for measures restricting teen abortion and creating a voluntary program for drug discounts backed by the pharmaceutical industry.
Already the governor has come out in favor of an initiative that would limit the use of union dues for political purposes and his own ballot measures to cap spending, redraw legislative districts and lengthen the probationary period for public school teachers.
Observers said Schwarzenegger is looking to rally his Republican base in advance of the upcoming Nov. 8 special election. The governor is also opposing an initiative aimed at regulating the energy system.
