California Laws in 2019

- Want A Straw In Your Drink At A California Diner? You'll Have To Ask For One
Beginning in 2019 California will be the first state to prohibit sit-down restaurants from serving drinks with plastic straws, unless upon request. It's not an outright ban, nor does it stop fast-food restaurants, delis or coffee-shops from serving drinks with plastic straws. Dine-in restaurants will still be able to use plastic straws, but diners will have to ask for them specifically.

- California Restaurants Must Make Milk Or Water The Default Kids Meal Drink
Restaurants in California that offer kids meal combos will be required to promote water or unflavored milk as the default drink option starting Jan. 1, under a new law that aims to discourage the consumption of soda, juice and other sugary beverages among young people.

- If Counties Get On Board, Selling Food From Your Own Kitchen Could Become Legal In California
California Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia, who authored the bill, says that homemade food sales are a vital part of self-reliant communities. “Legitimizing these home businesses will offer a means of economic empowerment and pathways for many to achieve the ‘American dream,’”

- New California Law Cracks Down On Animal Sales In Pet Stores
Pet stores will no longer be allowed to buy from breeders, or from “puppy mills,” which raise animals in poor conditions for profit. Instead, they’ll have to source their animals from shelters and rescues.

- More Californians convicted of DUI offenses will be required to pass a breathalyzer test to start their vehicles under a new law going into effect
It requires drivers convicted of first-time DUI offenses that lead to an injury to pass a breathalyzer connected to their vehicle, called an ignition interlock device or IID, each time they start their car for six months. The devices also require random tests while in motion, to prevent the driver from drinking after they’ve passed the first test.
