Haven't heard of a change in the law, as of yet. You have always and still need a licensed electrician to install a GFCI outlet to plug the low voltage transformer in, unless there already is an outlet available. I can't imagine electricians want to get involved, or the state wanting to restrict low voltage landscape lighting. House current, 110 volts or more, must be installed by an electrician, unless the homeowners chooses to do so and assume the liability. None of my suppliers are aware of any changes governing landscape lighting as of this time. Let's hope someone got their information confused.
