LOS ANGELES Less than one week after Chinese New Year, California legislators have introduced a bill to ban the possession, sale and distribution of shark fins used in a traditional soup.
If successful, the proposed ban announced Monday would follow a similar measure enacted in Hawaii last year. Oregon and Washington are also considering similar legislation.

First the proposed ban on fur and now this? Go California!

Wow. One more reason for me to weep over not being able to afford university in California. Sigh. Go, California!
