OC Legislation '95

October 18, 1995

The deadline for Gov. Pete Wilson to sign legislation for the 1995 year passed at midnight Monday. With the Assembly now in Republican hands, the GOP-dominated Orange County delegation did far better in getting bills approved than in past years. Although legislative efforts were dominated by attempts to help Orange County out of bankruptcy, the delegation managed to push through new laws that address everything from air pollution to insurance. A synopsis of the lawmakers' top bills. Most take effect Jan. 1.
