    California governor vetoes bill to pay people to stay sober

    Sacramento, California (AP) —Governor Gavin Newsom has rejected a bill that makes California the first state to pay to keep people calm.

    But just because Newsom rejected the bill on Friday doesn’t mean that there will be no drug treatment program in California.

    Newsom supports treatments known as contingency management. But he wants to test it first before signing the law to make it permanent.

    Newsom has asked the federal government for permission to run the pilot program until March 2024.

    Senator Scott Wiener said he was disappointed with Newsom’s decision and called the veto a setback in the fight against the drug epidemic.
