The death of Kanye West’s mother, Dr. Donda West, prompted California lawmakers to partially enact a bill requiring potential cosmetic surgery patients to first undergo a physical examination. Weeks after going into effect, the governor has vetoed the bill.
In addition to requiring a physical exam, the bill (written by Assemblywoman Wilma Amina Carter), would have also required patients to disclose their complete medical history and get a doctor’s clearance. Citing the state’s 85-day delay in passing a new budget as the reasoning, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the bill.
In other Kanye West news, the rapper is linking his Dr. Donda West Foundation with the Live to Give Campaign to present a concert in Washington D.C. focused on community empowerment.
All of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to selected charities.
