Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed AB 376, the bipartisan legislation aimed at clarifying that the Unruh Civil Rights Act doesn't apply to businesses offering discounts to furloughed workers.
Just a few weeks ago, it looked like the measure was stalled, the victim of partisan wrangling that hindered nearly two dozen so-called "urgency" measures that required a two-thirds vote in the Senate to reach the governor.
But as we reported in this post, the Senate unanimously supported the bill (the Assembly had done the same earlier), so it wound up going to the governor. It's now law.
