Laura's Law

Hosted by

Orange County has become the first major county in California to adopt what’s known as "Laura’s Law." Supervisors voted unanimously for it. That means people suffering from mental illness who are a threat to the community can be forced into treatment by a court. Will Orange County lead the way for the rest of the state to adopt the law?
