July 1 brings new, odd laws across U.S.

July 1, 2012 at 12:20 PM

WASHINGTON, July 1 (UPI) -- Some laws taking effect across the United States Sunday are a bit odd, such as the banning of releasing feral hogs into the wild in Kentucky, officials said.

A multitude of new laws come into effect annually on July 1 across the United States, and some are a bit unusual this year, CNN reported.

While Kentucky lawmakers barred people from releasing untamed pigs into the wild, Chicago is now allowing taxi drivers to charge passengers a $50 cleanup fee for vomiting in cabs.

In Idaho, law enforcement officials can issue arrest warrants by fax, and Virginia is now accepting a concealed handgun permit as a valid form of identification for voting.
