Wait.....That's Illegal Now!
By Jack Tapper
It may have been the least productive year for Congress
in history, at least in terms of passing laws – fewer than 60 of which made it
through the House and Senate and were signed by President Barack Obama.
Across the country, however, state lawmakers were busy
getting more than 40,000 bills passed, ones that tackle everything from drones
to food stamp benefits.
In Illinois for example, teenagers will no longer get to use tanning beds
without a doctor's note. If you live in Delaware, visit the shark fin buffet
while you can, a new law will make it illegal to own, sale, or distribute the
controversial delicacy. And in California, new laws take effect that will let
students take part in school sports, or use bathrooms based on their gender
identity, regardless of the gender noted in their birth certificates.
