California laws, also referred to as "statutes", are enacted by the State
legislature, through passage of Assembly or Senate bills.
California regulations, also referred to as "standards", are written and
filed, by one or more State programs, in response to a law/statute.
Regulations/Standards serve to implement the mandates of a law/statute. In other
words, regulations/standards establish the detailed requirements for doing what
the law/statute requires.
