In California, 760 laws have come into effect. As the state is already
in financial trouble, not everyone is pleased with the news laws or the
money it will cost. While some took effect on January 1st, others will not become authoritative until later this year.
Gov. Jerry Brown has upset conservatives with some of the social-related
bills that he signed into law. An example of this relates to the gay,
lesbian, and transgender population. It is now required that their history
be taught in school, as well as their "role and contributions"
Other laws relate more to
criminal defense proceedings. California is now the fourth state to ban the sale and possession
of shark fins. This has upset members of the Chinese-American community
as it is part of their cultural menu. But in an effort to protect this
endangered species, it is now illegal. It is also illegal to carry a handgun publicly.
