Congratulations California: You now have 725 new laws

California Crackup: How Reform Broke the Golden State and How We Can Fix It
California is broke. Instead of fixing the budget, California legislators enacted 725 new laws to burden their citizenry. Here are a few examples:
 AB 119 prevents insurance companies from charging different rates for men and women for identical coverage.

AB 715 makes a change to the California Green Building Standards code. The change will require new California buildings to be energy efficient.

AB 12 allows foster youth to acquire state services until the age of 21.

AB 97 bans the use of trans-fats in food facilities.
The four laws listed above will make insurance premiums high for men, increase the cost of building, cost taxpayers more in social services and make food less tasty. Why anyone still lives in California is beyond me.
