The San Francisco Chronicle reports Gov. Jerry Brown is "suspicious" of legislation that is being considered which will change the California governor's clemency power. The legislation is, of course, in response to a late term commutation of sentence by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Brown says, "continuity and respect for our institutions are also important" and that he is "hesitant to add any more restrictions" to the Governor's powers. See story here.
