Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
Happy New Year!
I was just reading through all the new laws going into effect this year and noticed such things as:
Tanning booths: To address concern about skin cancer, changes the parental consent law for minors, ages 14 to 18, who patronize businesses using ultraviolet tanning devices so that such consent must be provided in person.
Trout protection: Declares state policy to discourage the release of hatchery-raised hybrid and nonnative fish species in waters set aside by the government for wild trout.
Witness protection: Gives the state attorney general authority to coordinate with and reimburse local agencies that provide protection to those testifying against gang members.
If we can have laws protecting teens, criminals and fish, why can’t we have a law protecting my belief that I should be able to marry the person that I love?
Sometimes I think you have more respect for trout than you have for gay people.
