The legislature adjourned the 2014 legislative session Monday evening. Weve had a great session and I would like to thank the Legislature for their hard work, Gov. Bobby Jindal said.

Jindals signature is a bill that would limit where welfare recipients can use federal money.

An entire industry has exploded around this, and so you have a law that was in place that didnt have an industry when it was set. Gabriel said its unclear, at this point, what will actually be passed into law, and that his constituency is OK with changes that dont necessarily benefit recreational anglers in every case. In some instances, were fairly certain were going to go from 51 percent commercial/49 percent recreational to at least 50/50, if not 51 recreational/49 commercial, he said.
