New Year, New Laws

Hi, I'm Donna Krache, executive producer of CNN Student News.  Part of my job is to find news stories that are informative and interesting.  In my digging, I learn some interesting stuff, like this:  Many states have new laws that have gone into effect with the new year.   For example, I've learned that Washington just outlawed text messaging while driving and in California it's illegal to smoke with a child in the car.  And 14 states have raised the minimum wage as of January 1st.   So here's a serious question for you:  What law would you like to see in effect where you live?  Blog your thoughts here!
