New Laws Take Effect In Louisiana

Louisiana Flag

Several new laws are in effect across the state of Louisiana.

One of the new laws amends the definition of "household member" in an effort to assist a victim in a domestic abuse situation. Another law lowers the fine for littering but allows more community service time for offenders.

Immediate family members are now legally qualified to purchase a firearm of a law enforcement officer who's been killed.

For a full list of the new laws, you can visit the Louisiana State Legislature website.
