Five civil bills have been signed by the governor, and three have been vetoed.
- SB 1358 by Sen. Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) – State claims.
- A version of this bill is passed every year, to pay out civil lawsuits that California lost, if enough money is not available. This year’s payout is $2.88 million, for two lawsuits, according to a legislative report. The larger lawsuit was brought by the conservative Thomas More Law Center. California threatened to suspend the center’s registration in 2012
