New Laws In Effect For The New Year

Domestic partners, the unemployed, nursing mothers, janitors, hat-loving students and sheepherders will have something extra to celebrate on New Year´s Day.

They are among the beneficiaries of hundreds of new California laws that take effect tomorrow.

Governor Davis signed 948 bills in 2001. The overwhelming majority of them become law with the arrival of the new year.
