Louisiana Advocacy Update: Week 9

by Krystle N. on Monday, May 12, 2014

Only three weeks remain in the 2014 legislative session! In week 8, HB 542, CPR in schools, successfully passed the Senate Education Committee and the House Transportation Committee unanimously voted in favor of Sen. Heitmeier's Complete Streets bill.

One More Vote! 
On Thursday, May 8th, the Senate Committee on Education voted YES to HB 542, CPR in schools.
Which means we are only one vote away from making Louisiana CPR Smart!

Thanks for making calls, writing letters, and TAKING ACTION! Stay tuned for more updates. 
Complete Streets! 
Last week, Senator David Heimeiter's SB 527, Complete Streets successfully passed the House Transportation Committee. The bill is scheduled to be heard on the house floor next week.
