If your child goes to an elementary or middle school in the region, they'll be required to take less standardized tests starting next year.
The plan to reduce it from 22 to 17 has been signed into law by the governor. The penalties will also be tough if somebody fires a gun to celebrate a sports victory or a holiday. They're among hundreds of new laws that go into effect on July 1st.
