New Laws For The New Year

Several new laws are set to take effect when we ring in the New Year next week.

Among them, changes to the state's election laws.

A legislative oversight committee will be formed to study the state's elections laws and to look at elections initiatives in other states.

A pilot project for instant-runoff voting allowing voters in a primary to also mark their second and perhaps third choices, which would eliminate the need for a runoff primary.

Another new law prevents state employees from smoking in state vehicles.

The law is an effort protect State Employees' health.

Also, a new law gives motorists 60 days to re-inspect a car that failed inspection without paying another inspection fee.
