This is a big step in the right direction!

On Wednesday, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill — called SB813 — that will end the 10-year statute of limitations for prosecuting certain rape and child molestation cases.

The measure was inspired by Bill Cosby's alleged attacks, many of which came to light decades after. Unfortunately, this new piece of legislation will not help many of these women who are accusing the comedian of rape.

The actor is currently facing a criminal case in Pennsylvania, as well as a civil suit in California from a woman who claims he molested her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974 when she was only 15-years-old.

According to Senator Connie Leyva:

California Passes Bill Requiring IMDb To Remove Actors' Ages From Site — But Does The Law Prevent Age Discrimination Or Suppress Free Speech?

no title

This is an interesting law to have been passed!

On Saturday afternoon, California Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation requiring entertainment websites like IMDb to remove — or not post in the first place — an actor's age or birthday upon request from the specific actor.

The law, known now as AB 1687, will take effect on January 1, and applies almost exclusively to the entertainment industry in a bid to prevent rampant age discrimination in Hollywood and elsewhere.

The law applies to any entertainment database site (like IMDb) that allows paid subscribers to post head shots, resumes, and other information for prospective employers.

And while it doesn't just apply to actors, but rather the entire industry, it stands that actors will likely be the most affected ones here.

Gabrielle Carteris, a SAG-AFTRA spokeswoman, spoke about the bill being passed and what it will do for performers now that this has been taken seriously, saying:

This is probably a good idea.

Even though a parole board recommendation came down to let Manson Family member Leslie Van Houten free after decades in prison, California Governor Jerry Brown has flatly denied the request, citing her unbelievable cruelty so many years ago.

Great work, California!

The Golden State has become the first in the nation to completely ban the use of 'Redskins' as a mascot for any public school sports team, with a bill signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown (pictured above) on Sunday.

The ban comes in direct relation to the ongoing controversy surrounding the NFL's Washington Redskins, and that team's refusal to change their mascot, which Native American advocacy groups and allies have continually said is racist and cruel.

With California's ban, the state joins communities — like Houston, Texas and Madison, Wisconsin — in ridding themselves of the racially insensitive term in the public realm surrounding sports and mascots.

California's bill, Assembly Bill 30, also known as the California Racial Mascots Act, prohibits public schools from using 'Redskins' for athletic mascots or nicknames beginning on January 1, 2017.

Governor Brown said of the bill, and other legal moves on racial issues:

Jim Carrey has no problem putting our government on blast!

On Tuesday, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed one of the strictest vaccination programs in the country.

For doing so, the Dumb & Dumber star is calling the governor a "corporate fascist" because he believes there is a link between vaccines and autism!

The legislation would require children in daycares and schools to be immunized no matter what, with the exception of serious medical reasons. This bill would take power away from the parents decision on if they wanted their child vaccinated or not.

Only two states — Mississippi and West Virginia — are this strict in enforcing that no child is immune to the immunization process.

Carrey took to Twitter to warn his followers about the dangerous bill, and the dangers of injecting thimerosal, writing:
