    Stories Covered This Week Include:

    New California Laws for 2017

    Minimum wage:

    As of January first, the minimum wage will increase from 10 to $10.50 an hour: that's for businesses for 26 or more employees. That wage will keep rising until it hits 15-dollars an hour in 2022.

     

    Assault weapons: 

    this year, lawmakers passed a number of bills to strengthen our tough gun laws, and voters passed even more regulations: As of January first: people who own magazines that hold more than 10 rounds will be required to give them up. Buyers will need a background check before purchasing ammunition and will be barred from buying new weapons that have a bullet button: a device that makes it easier to dislodge a magazine.

     

    Handgun storage:

    As of January first: all law enforcement officers have the same rules as the rest of us when it comes to handguns: they must be securely stored in a lockbox out of plain view or in the trunk if weapons are left in an unattended vehicle.

     

    Sexual assault:

    Largely due to the sentence in the Brock Turner case, those convicted of sexual assault on an unconscious or severely intoxicated person in California will not receive a sentence of probation only...

     

    It's not just texting anymore: 

    new state law in California prohibits the use of any hand-held device while driving: including using traffic apps or updating your Instagram account while driving. If your phone is voice-operated or mounted in your car, you're okay.
