Found this news from last night; The vote-count pretty much said what the majority wanted.... :

.... The bill passed the Republican-controlled House by a vote of 111-28 and the Republican-led Senate with a 21-7 vote, enough for the two-thirds needed for a veto override.

"This governor continues to prove he is disengaged with the Legislature, is unwilling to offer any fresh ideas, and vetoes good public policy," Republican state Senator Tom Dempsey said in a statement.

I wonder if he'd have signed it if it had been put forth as Bill Clinton's idea... It was. April 2000, "Clinton pledges funds to add police to schools" LATimes.
