Governor Brown hands reproductive health decisions to employers

Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday vetoed legislation wading into the contentious debate over reproductive health rights and religious freedom in the workplace.

Assembly Bill 569 would have prohibited employers from punishing workers who use birth control, get an abortion or make other reproductive health decisions they disagree with.

The bill was opposed by wealthy business groups, including the California Chamber of Commerce.
