New Agent Law In Cali

California guvnuh Arnold Schwarzenegger recently signed into law legislation that will increase the surety bond for talent agents in the state from $10,000 to $50,000.

The increase, proposed by former William Morris agent and current state senator Kevin Murray, is expected to protect entertainers from loss of wages if their agents are fly-by-night and/or go out of business.

The bill had the support of SAG.
