Proof that the Lege actually exists
Vehicle emissions: Annual car inspections must now include an emissions test on vehicles two years or older, adding $16 to the tab. It'll cost us more time and money, but we'll be healthier for it.
Abortion restrictions: Physicians must have written consent from a parent before performing an abortion on unmarried females aged 18 or under. Also, the law prohibits doctors from performing abortions past 26 weeks of pregnancy, unless the mother's life is in danger or the baby has serious brain damage.
Life without parole: Until now, capital murder case juries could choose between lethal injection or life in prison with possible parole after 40 years. The parole option is now off the table.
Cell phones: Teenagers are prohibited from talking on a cell phone while driving, but only for the first six months after receiving a driver's license.
Child Protective Services: A massive overhaul will put controversial privatization measures to the test this also includes the hiring of 2,500 new caseworkers.
