BOISE, Idaho (AP) — One of the nation's most patriotic holidays is right around the corner, bringing not only a jump in outdoor cookouts but also a slew of new state laws ready to go into effect.

Starting July 1, a new fiscal year kicks off in Idaho. This means the state will begin implementing new budget and new policy.

The laws set to take effect this year include allowing guns on public college campuses, renewing a tax rebate for films shot in the state and creating a new fund to kill wolves.

Some laws that were passed during this legislative session are already in effect, including one punishing those who secretly film agricultural operations. Known as the "ag-gag" law, lawmakers allowed the legislation to kick in immediately after receiving the governor's signature.

Ag-Gag law, yipee! Yep, you can't get more patriotic than violating the First Amendment. Good job, Idaho "patriots."
