Thanks Grayout!
KXTV lets us know that Davis Signs Package of Anti-Terrorism Bills:
Gov. Gray Davis is working his way through two dozen bills having to do with state security. The bills were proposed after last September's terrorist attacks.

One bill keeps security guards from obtaining temporary registration cards before a background check is completed. Other measures boost penalties for using weapons of mass destruction and allow the state to increase its use of wiretaps to fight terrorism.
I wonder what the new penalty for using a weapon of mass destruction is? No tofu for 30 days? As for fighting terrorism, numerous California jurisidictions have made it clear they won't even interview known illegal aliens because it's "profiling". Whose wires are they planning on tapping? The Elks Club?
