California Governor Jerry Brown signed a law on Thursday to give journalists in the state five days’ notice before government agencies serve subpoenas on their records held by third parties, such as phone companies and internet service providers.

The law, which was approved by unanimous votes in the California Assembly and Senate, expands on the state’s existing shield law for journalists and will apply to subpoenas sought in state courts.
