Ready to make some money off of Assembly floor session video?

With the Legislature facing a First Amendment challenge, Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed legislation repealing the state’s prohibition against using Assembly-generated video for political or commercial purposes.

Assembly Bill 884, by Assemblyman Richard Gordon, D-Menlo Park, officially puts Assembly video within the public domain.

The bill passed the Legislature without dissent, and Brown signed the measure without comment.
