Other laws include the increase of the minimum wage from $8.30 to $8.55 an hour. Landline rates will also increase by $2 a month. Lawmakers have also approved raises for themselves including 4% raises in 2019 and 2020, 3% in 2021, and by one and three-quarters percent from 2022 through 2028.
And finally, those who like to expose to much of themselves, will be in more trouble than the have in the past. Those involved with flashing will now have to register as tier one sex offenders. The lowest of three levels categorizing sex offenders.
