Bobby Jindal said. With their help, we have accomplished new achievements for the people of Louisiana. One of new legislation awaiting Gov. Jindals signature is a bill that would limit where welfare recipients can use federal money. Under the new law people with Louisiana Purchase Cards (Louisiana EBT) would no longer be allowed to use those funds at lingerie shops, nail salons, tattoo parlors and any business with an age restriction of 18 or older. HB 1176 tightens guidelines on state legislation passed in 2013, which banned the use of EBT cards for alcohol, cigarettes and lottery tickets. Another bill, on the governors desk will raise the cost of a saltwater fishing license from $5.50 to $13.
