With their help, we have accomplished new achievements for the people of Louisiana. One of new legislation awaiting Gov. Jindals signature is a bill that would limit where welfare recipients can use federal money. Under the new law people with Louisiana Purchase Cards (Louisiana EBT) would no longer be allowed to use those funds at lingerie shops, nail salons, tattoo parlors and any business with an age restriction of 18 or older. HB 1176 tightens guidelines on state legislation passed in 2013, which banned the use of EBT cards for alcohol, cigarettes and lottery tickets. Another bill, on the governors desk will raise the cost of a saltwater fishing license from $5.50 to $13. Read more about EBT Card Restrictions and Saltwater Fishing License Hike Await Gov.

Making sense of the Magnuson-Stevens Act | Boating Industry

Jeff Angers of the Center for Coastal Conservation

But if it happens to go 52/48 against us, fine, thats fine. The issue is just do the process and get off the duff and do it. Moving forward From this point forward, H.R. 4742 awaits a vote on the floor of the House of Representatives, while the Senate Commerce Committee is also expected to unveil its version of the Magnuson-Stevens Act reauthorization in the near future. With mid-term elections looming in November, it has become increasingly likely that full reauthorization may not occur until the next session of Congress. We understand that Magnuson-Stevens Act reauthorization likely has a long road ahead before a final bill gets signed into law, so we are hopeful that working with our friends in Congress, we can get the recreational fishing and boating communitys priorities addressed, Angers said.
