Gov. Jerry Brown signed several dozen bills into law this afternoon, including a measure to allow college students who are undocumented immigrants to qualify for scholarships funded with private donations.

Assembly Bill 130, a part of the “Dream Act” package that Brown earlier said he would sign, was one of 33 bills that got the Democratic governor’s OK today. The list of laws that will be added to the books includes measures concerning electric vehicle charging stations, whooping cough vaccinations and who can be buried in a Davis cemetery.

Brown also announced that he has vetoed two measures, including a bill to create a new program for recipients of the Adult Day Heath Care services scrapped as part of this year’s budget package.
