Speed trap labeling bill dies
BATON ROUGE (AP) — Louisiana won’t have any officially labeled “speed traps.”
Rep. Steve Pylant’s effort to brand tiny towns that get more than half their annual income from speeding tickets with the moniker has failed to get the backing of the state House.
Even after a list of changes, Pylant could only get 47 votes for the bill Tuesday, six votes short of what was needed for passage.
The issue had become a contentious one for House members.
