: "SACRAMENTO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has once again vetoed legislation that would have allowed California to issue special 'driving only' licenses to illegal immigrants, unswayed by a new federal law that left him an opening to reverse course.
'The bill is premature and could undermine national security efforts to identify individuals who pose enormous risk to the safety of Californians,' Schwarzenegger said in his veto message issued yesterday.
Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, who has turned passage of a license measure into a crusade, insisted he would not surrender.
'I am neither discouraged nor deterred,' he said, promising to return with a new version next year."
