551 new laws went into effect in Louisiana Friday. One of those laws would grant an immediate divorce in domestic violence situations. New Orleans Senator JP Morrell says previously, even if you had tons of evidence that you were a victim of domestic violence, you’d still have to wait 6 months to a year before you get a divorce.

 

Morrell says other new laws dealing with domestic violence ban abusers under a protective order from possessing a firearm and those convicted of domestic abuse are prohibited from possessing a firearm for 10 years.

 

Motorists now face much stiffer penalties if they throw a cigarette butt from a car window. The new law increases fines for the intentional disposal of a cigarette from a motor vehicle. First offense fines are increased from $250 to $300, plus community service. Marrerro Representative Patrick Connick says the key to the success of this law is enforcement…

In the battle for a Louisiana Senate seat in the upcoming November election, Senator May Landrieu has just picked up an endorsement from The Louisiana Sheriff’s Association. The group also endorsed her in 2002 and 2008.

 

Business Facilities Magazine names the state of Louisiana as the number one business climate in the nation. This is the first time the Bayou State has topped a national business climate ranking.

 

New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson is a wealthy man. Turns out, he is very, very wealthy. Movoto, a real estate website, released an interactive map listing the richest person in each state, and Benson is the wealthiest person in Louisiana with an estimated $1.5 billion.

 

The new school year is approaching and the Department of Health and Hospitals is reminding parents to be sure your child is up-to-date on vaccinations. State immunologist Dr. Frank Welch says not only is ensuring your child has received the proper vaccinations important, it’s also the law. Welch says vaccines have proven safe and effective in preventing illness and death from many infectious diseases.

 

Colorado State University researchers continue to predict a below average 2014 Atlantic Hurricane season. CSU report Author Dr. William Gray says they are now calling for a total of 10 named storms with four becoming hurricanes and one to reach major hurricane strength. Gray says, just because a below average season is predicted, that doesn’t mean residents along the Gulf Coast shouldn’t take the usual precautions because you just never know.

 

The massive sinkhole in Bayou Corne happened 2 years ago and resident frustrations over the massive disaster continue.  The collapsed salt dome caused the evacuations of 350 people.  John Boudreaux, Director of the Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness says the sinkhole was created from a collapsed underground salt dome cavern operated by Texas Brine Company.  The company and property owners reached a settlement earlier this year to end damage claims and buy out their properties.

 

A University of Louisiana at Lafayette professor is conducting research to keep astronauts healthy.  Dr. Ray Boudreaux’s research is focused on one of the hazards of extended space missions:  bone loss.  Boudreaux says the bone mass of astronauts is reduced by 1 to 2 percent each month they are in space. He says the ultimate goal of this research is to get astronauts to Mars healthy.  Boudreaux says his research could also be helpful to help people who are bedridden for several months at a time or patients suffering from spinal cord injuries

ULM President Nick Bruno says Monroe offers great support to the university. The list was compiled based on the cost of living index published by the Council for Community and Economic Research. Bruno says in these days of rising tuition costs, students consider things like cost of food, housing, utilities and transportation when choosing where they want to attend college.
