State laws regulating businesses include restrictions on deceptive business practices; environmental regulations, such as waste and pollution controls; securities fraud; state taxes; insurance and liability; contracts; and employment. California business laws typically are shaped through statutes and the courts, but some laws are decided by voters. For instance, in the 2008 general election, Californians voted to raise the standards for the confinement of livestock and approved funds for a high-speed rail project, both of which directly affect businesses.
