    WAFB in Baton Rouge has reported on 10pm news on memorial day that a bill has been passed in the senate to allow mini trucks on the road and Is now on the way to the house.

    They didn't give an HB number yet, but as soon as I get one I will be emailing my rep.

    I also will post up the info for any other peeps in Louisiana.

    they had John deer gators at LSU.... yeah that is not a mini truck but when the anchor was talking about it they had a Carry in the top left of screen with K-class on the side of it.

    At least they got the Icon right.

    I saw that on wafb also. It's SB771. Not much information is out about it yet, but I would sure love to see it get passed.

    I am going to call my rep Cazioux and tell him to vote yes for SB771 since I voted for him and he is supposed to be representing us.

    Cazioux is now our US House rep. SB771 is a LA state govt thing.

    As for status, if you look up the status of the bill:
    "ASSIGNED TO HOUSE TRANSPORTATION, HIGHWAYS, AND PUBLIC WORKS"

    Whatever that means.

    Probably the bill was referred to that committee for hearings and study.

    This is the link to contacting your Rep. or Senator, plus lots of other good information.
    I have never written to anyone and don't have a way with words like some people, but would be happy to copy and paste a letter then sign my name to the bottom of it asking for their support on the passage of this bill by Senator Hebert SB771

    whoooo nelly,

    It's passed a few hurdles, but it has a way to go. It passed the senate and is out of the house committee on transportation. It will be voted on some time in the next month and may or may not have to return to the senate if additional ammendments are recommended. Then the Govenor will have to sign it. It won't be enacted until August 15 at the earliest.
