Trans-fats are thing of the past in certain food facilities, for example. And insurance companies can't charge men and women different rates for the same coverage.
By Hoa Quách

Californians will welcome 725 new laws on Jan. 1. Here's a glance at some of the laws taking effect when you ring in the new year:
AB 119 prevents insurance companies from charging different rates for men and women for identical coverage.
SB 782 prevents landlords from evicting tenants who are victims of domestic or sexual abuse or stalking.
AB 1844—informally known as Chelsea's Law and authored by local Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher—will increase penalties, parole provisions and oversight of sex offenders, including a "one-strike, life-without-parole penalty" for some. 
AB 1871 allows people to lease out their cars when they are not being used—alleviating the need to purchase additional insurance.
AB 537 will make food stamps an acceptable form of payment at farmers markets through an EBT process.
SB 1411 makes it a misdemeanor to maliciously impersonate someone via a social media outlet or through e-mails.
SB 1317 allows the state to slap parents with a $2,000 fine if their K-8 child misses more than 10 percent of the school year without a valid excuse. It also allows the state to punish parents with up to a year in prison for the misdemeanor.
AB 715 makes a change to the California Green Building Standards code. The change will require new California buildings to be energy efficient.
SB 1449 makes the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana an infraction with a penalty of a $100 fine.
AB 12 allows foster youth to acquire state services until the age of 21.
SB 1399 allows California to medically parole state prison inmates with physical incapacitating conditions and ultimately shifts some of the cost of care to the federal government.
AB 97 bans the use of trans-fats in food facilities.

So in other words, miss too many indoctrination sessions, and the parents are jailed. Orwell didn't know how right he was.

Once the populace gets used to the Draconian school rules, they will start codifying and penalizing little Johnny for not getting it right or quick enough.

Having recently turned 50 with a clean driving record, I'm still waiting for those wonderful rate reductions I was promised when I was a twenty something. Oh.... it's not about men getting a fair deal, it's about women not paying more for health insurance.

"SB 782 prevents landlords from evicting tenants who are victims of domestic or sexual abuse or stalking."

California continues to have no respect for private property.

A law that says that you can't be evicted for one incident, or even two, might sound reasonable, but a landlord needs to be able to get rid of shit-magnets. If a person his on his or her second, third, or fourth abusive relationship, is it against the law to tell that person that the problem might be his or her choices?

I have a funny feeling that the insurance companies are about to jack rates in California.

Please. :rolleyes: You're assuming that there will actually be actual abuse. Reality is - Peggy the drug addict welfare queen is about to get evicted. So she claims that her boy friend is beating her so now she can stay without even having to pay rent. :rolleyes:

Here's a better idea- actually slap the parent of a child who will not sit down, shut up, behave himself, be respectful, and do his work.

You can bet this provision will be used against home schoolers since California is rather hostile to anyone but the state indoctrinating, er...teaching children.

Because I found that shocking (as we have been home schoolers in Florida) I went looking, and it appears that ruling was undone. I'm guessing the court reversed itself rather than have its jurisdiction entirely removed by "activist judges" on the Supreme Court who would see the first ruling as an infringement on parental rights.
