Jindal Vetoes Bill on Dogs in Pickup Trucks, Cites 'Nanny State'


Rep. Tom Willmott's proposal to secure dogs on the open road had the Louisiana House playing "Who Let the Dogs Out" earlier this session. But Bobby Jindal wasn't barking back. The governor vetoed HB 10901 over the weekend, citing concerns about animal cruelty.


Veto Session Killed, Jindal's Disabled Care Cuts Stand


There will be no Red Stick Stand by state legislators unhappy with Bobby Jindal this year. Some leges and a group trying to stop cuts to disabled care made a late charge to convene a new session that would have taken a second look at the bills vetoed by the governor. But too few legislators signed up to scoop the bills out of the scrap pile.


Jindal Vetoes Morial Convention Center Expansion Bill


Several weeks after the legislature finished up its regular session, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has released the all-important list of laws successfully passed by the legislature which he saw fit to undo with a veto, as is his right.

But Head decided instead to put more food truck legislation forward. The latest draft contains only an increase in the number of permits available for mobile vendors, leaving aside other reforms.
