New California Laws

Posted Dec 30, 2015

Most of the bills passed during the last legislative session are set to become effective January 1, 2016.  The New Laws Report  at the California Legislative Counsel’s website lists the bills enacted during the calendar year of the 2015 regular session of the Legislature. The list identifies the bill and chapter number, lead author, and the subject of the measure.  All bills on the list become effective January 1, 2016 unless otherwise noted.  Read articles in the Sacramento Bee,  San Jose Mercury News and Capital Public Radio about some of the changes to expect.
