IT’S THE LAW — in California, starting Monday!

New California laws that will take effect on Monday:

– first year of community college will be free for all new students (must be full time)
– recreational marijuana legal to purchase 
– vehicle registration will cost $25 to $175 more based on the value of your car 
– minimum wage up to $11 per hour
– Sanctuary State law will limit local cooperation/resources with ICE
– guns banned at all public schools even for those with concealed carry permits
– all ammunition purchases (or pickups) must be made in person
– gender identity no longer a requirement on IDs
– baby changing tables will be required in all restrooms, including men’s
– pet stores will only be able to sell rescue animals (sp. dogs, cats, rabbits)
– employers will no longer be able to ask for your salary/benefits history, and must provide a pay-scale for the job upon request
– wearing a seat belt on buses will become mandatory for those with seat belts. Buses carrying children aged 8-16 must provide seat belts
– free tampons and pads must be in at least half of all restrooms in public schools that serve low-income areas (defined as 40% poverty or more)

Come Monday, making this sort of pun will be a misdemeanor.


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
