New California laws on soda and internet privacy protections

Hosted by

Governor Jerry Brown on Thursday signed a sweeping bill to expand internet privacy protections -- a move that could ripple out to the rest of the country. The governor also signed a more than 10-year ban on new local soda taxes. Also, a dozen ballot measures have now qualified for the November ballot. Voters will be able to decide on repealing the gas tax, expanding rent control, and requiring all eggs sold in California to come from cage-free chickens.
