The California legislature is wrapping up a marathon week of work. Both the Assembly and Senate finished voting on hundreds of bills before an end-of-the-week deadline.

The Senate approved several measures including one that would raise the minimum wage in California to $13 by 2017, and another that would require health labels on sugary drinks. In the Assembly, a bill requiring that porn actors use condoms and get regularly tested for STDs passed, while a bill that would regulate medical marijuana was rejected.
