New laws to take effect Jan. 1

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – January 1 will bring new laws across the U.S.

In California, driver’s licenses will be available for people in the country illegally.

And a “yes means yes” standard for sex between college students takes effect in California as well. The new law requires what the law calls “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.”

The minimum wage will go up in Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Maryland, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
