New laws in effect around U.S; here's Oklahoma changes.


OKLAHOMA CITY — • BEEKEEPERS: Beekeepers who produce less than 500 gallons of honey annually will be exempted from state inspections after July 1 if they meet certain requirements.

• STIFFER PENALTIES: Laying that trash on Oklahoma will cost you a little more after July 1. The penalty for littering will be doubled, from $200 to $400. Another new law creates the crime of knowingly cutting or damaging a fence used to contain animals, making it a misdemeanor for the first offense and a felony for the second offense with a penalty of up to two years in prison and a $1,000 fine, or both.
