Shark Fins and Cell Phones: A Roundup of This Week's State Legislative Activity

Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Thursday, August 18, 2011
For those who still use a hand-held phone or text while driving, the legislature sent a bill to Governor Jerry Brown that would increase the fines for those offenses.  When you tack on local fees, fines could be in the 300 to 500 dollar range.  Also on Brown's desk is a measure that would require U-C, C-S-U and community college auxiliaries and foundations to comply with state public records laws.  Additionally, the Legislature approved a bill that would require minors to wear helmets while skiing or snowboarding on California's slopes.  Legislative committees delayed voting on a couple of controversial bills:  One would abolish the death penalty in California.  The other would ban the sale of shark fins - including shark fin soup.  Legislative session ends in three weeks.
