It’s been a whirlwind of a year, especially in the world of politics.

And in California, the election came a slew of new bills and therefore, new laws. The landscape of the state’s highly debated issues such as minimum wage, assault weapons and even mascot names will begin to change in 2017, according to the Sacramento Bee.

John Myers of the Los Angeles Times and Melody Gutierrez of the San Francisco Chronicle speak with Patt Morrison today to give you a roundup of what’s to come.
