Louisiana Advocacy Update: Week 10

by Krystle N. on Monday, May 19, 2014

Only 2 weeks left of the Louisiana legislative session! Last week, legislators tackled issues with TOPS, E-cigarettes, and the State Budget. Also, Governor Jindal signed a new law that will classify cigarette butts as litter and allow higher fines to be levied against people who throw them out car windows in Louisiana. And CPR heads to the Governor's desk for signature!

Senate Victory! 
Last week, the State Senate voted 36-0 in favor of HB 542, CPR in schools. Because the bill was named the Burke Cobb bill, it has to return to the State House for approval of the new name. From there, it heads to the Governor's desk for signature. 

Thanks for making calls, writing letters, and TAKING ACTION! Stay tuned for more updates.
