Stories you shouldn’t miss:
1. Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that will allow undocumented workers in California obtain driver’s licenses, reversing his previous opposition to it, the SacBee$ reports. Brown said he changed his mind about the bill because of Congressional foot-dragging over immigration reform. The driver’s license legislation is viewed as a key victory for immigration reform advocates.
3. BART unions have reduced their wage demands, and are now requesting 3.75 percent annual raises for the first two years and a 4 percent raise the third year, the Chron reports. BART management said it plans to revise its proposal as well.
4. Friends and family of a Connecticut woman are at a loss to explain why she tried to ram through a White House barricade yesterday and led police on a high-speed chase before being shot to death by officers, the Washington Post reports.
5. And Brown signed a new law that would prohibit the state government from seizing journalists’ notes without warning — as the Obama administration has done, the Chron reports.
