"Brown signed the first bill that allows Chinese restaurants to hang up roast chicken and duck."

In the last days of campaigning before the election, various efforts from a Democratic push for Brown to one against passing Prop 19 were made to get out the Chinese-American vote.

The China Press reports that Assemblyman Mike Eng attempted to appeal to fellow Chinese-Americans on ethnic grounds. “California needs an experienced governor. During his former term as governor, Brown signed the first bill that allows Chinese restaurants to hang up roast chicken and duck," Eng said at Jerry Brown's rally at the Central Library branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. "He is also the first to legalize the practice of Chinese traditional medicine in California. His efforts for legal rights for Chinese Americans is the reason why I support him."

In a separate event Monday, the LA80-20, a political action committee dedicated to winning equal opportunity and justice for all Asian Americans, and the Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs Association (APAPA) held a joint event in Monterey Park to encourage Chinese Americans to vote, the World Journal reports. LA80-20 expressed concern with the potential negative impact of Proposition 19 which proposes the legalization of marijuana.
