On October 19, 2010 Arnold Schwarzenegger signed California’s Budget Act of 2010.  Part of this act included provisions raising lawsuit filing fees.

Normally, a bill becomes a law on January 1st of the year after it was signed.  However, this particular bill contained an urgency clause, meaning it came into effect upon signature – October 19, 2010.
