Governor Jerry Brown of California is definitely a liberal. But he’s not afraid to occasionally go against the grain of the left wing of his party.
In 2002, California lawmakers wisely expanded the statute of limitation for sex abuse victims and the Catholic Church approved.
But the Church opposed a recent bill that would have eliminated the statute of limitations on sexual crimes committed against minors … but only for private institutions.
The bill exempted public schools and other government institutions and Governor Brown was correct to veto it.
