    LOS ANGELES (CNS)—A newly signed state law authored by a Southland legislator makes spreading misinformation about voting by mail a misdemeanor criminal offense.

    Senate Bill 739 (SB 739) was signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sept. 18 and took effect immediately as an urgency measure.

    Sen. Henry Stern (D-Los Angeles), who authored the bill, said he hopes prosecutors will take note.
