Governor Vetoes Minimum Wage, Wal-Mart, Drug Testing Bills

Governor Schwarzenegger has vetoed bills that would raise California´s minimum wage to 7-75 an hour and require economic impact reports before local governments approve Wal-Mart like superstores.

The Republican governor has also turned down a measure limiting random drug testing of students.

Schwarzenegger contends the minimum wage and Wal-Mart bills would hurt the state´s economy.

He says drug testing policies should be left up to local schools.
