Note to Users: ACA-Action has attempted to add hyperlinks to all of the legal references in this bill.
Where possible, we attempt to link to the Codes rather than the Law as passed, since they are more accessible, and more likely to be kept up-to-date.
California Codes provide links only to groups of code sections, so it may be necessary to scroll to reach the targeted code section.
Many of these links will change as codes and regulations change.
Please inform hsfrey at harp dot org of any broken links you find, so that they may be updated.

  2. Embalmed ones
  3. Those that are trained
  4. Suckling pigs
  5. Mermaids (or Sirens)
  6. Fabulous ones
  7. Stray dogs
  8. Those that are included in this classification
  9. Those that tremble as if they were mad
  10. Innumerable ones
  11. Those drawn with a very fine camel hair brush
  12. Et cetera
  13. Those that have just broken the flower vase
  14. Those that, at a distance, resemble flies
