About law new

Legislation passed by Congress or other legislative bodies is known as legislation. When a bill is voted on by committee and recommended for approval, the staff writes a committee report which gives detailed information about the purpose of the bill. This report sets forth in section-by-section analysis precisely what the proposed law is intended to do. It also includes explanations of the changes in existing laws.

A number of new laws went into effect Monday as a result of this year’s legislative session. Undocumented immigrants can now qualify for Medi-Cal, pet owners can get telehealth services and a shield law protects reproductive rights. Read more about these and other laws that went into effect here. Also, learn more about the history of how our laws are made here.
