Brown Delivers Jab At Lawmakers On Mountain Lion Bill

SACRAMENTO (AP) — It’s not quite a cat fight, but it’s close.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday sent a catty letter to California lawmakers in signing a bill that allows dead mountain lions to be stuffed and displayed in museums so long as they were not illegally killed.

The Democratic governor reasoned that if Democrats and Republicans showed the same “energetic bipartisan spirit” in stuffing dead mountain lions, then surely they can work with him on encouraging job growth in California.

Many of the governor’s budget and economic initiatives, including ones to promote alternative energy and closing a tax loophole that sends jobs out of state, failed to gain enough support this year.

The bill, SB769 by Republican Sen. Jean Fuller of Bakersfield, creates an exemption for displaying the protected species.
