House passes bill to require school buses entering service in 2023 or after to have seat belts for passengers.

House passes bill to require school buses entering service in 2023 or after to have seat belts for passengers.

A bus accident that happened in Grant Parish this year which caused the bus to overturn. With 17 children on board. With the new law, buses will be required to have seatbelts.

The House passed a bill 55-44 Tuesday to require any school bus entering the school system in 2023 or after to have seat belts for passengers.

Rep. Robby Carter, D-Amite, said he brought the bill because he knows that the state will not be able to appropriate the funds to require seat belts for passengers in all school buses retroactively.

Carter brought a successful bill in 2004 to require seat belts in school buses, but he did not find a way to fund that bill. Now, 17 years later, he hopes to pass legislation that will actually make the change he meant to make earlier in his career.

No Winn Parish gas shortage, but don’t panic buy gas

No Winn Parish gas shortage, but don’t panic buy gas

Panic buying gas can cause a shortage of gas in the area. The Colonial Pipeline has been fixed, it could still take a while to be back up at full capacity. As of now, there’s no shortage in Winn Parish, but be sure to not contribute to shortages with panic buying.

Colonial Pipeline has returned its entire system to normal operations and is delivering millions of gallons of fuel each hour after a ransomware attack forced the company shut its network last Friday.

The cyberattack had forced the company to shut down approximately 5,500 miles of pipeline and triggered widespread fuel shortages in the Southeast and panic buying in some states.

Though the pipeline has returned to normal, many places in the U.S. are still experiencing gas shortages, with some states still have 80 percent of their gas stations without fuel.

Attorney General takes over Winnfield case

Attorney General takes over Winnfield case

Lance Gardner who was arrested in June 2020 in connection with the murder of family pet, Kara

The trial of Lance Gardner over the accused murder of Winnfield family pet, Kara a golden retriever, receives a shake-up as Winnfield DA Chris Nevils and District Court Judge Anastasia Wiley recused themselves from the case and handed it off to the Attorney General’s office in April.

Assistant Attorney General Winston White, part of the Criminal Division, has been given the reigns of the case.

“I recused myself due to some LLC work I had done for Gardener,” Nevils said. “I’d have liked to see it through, but I have a lot of faith in the assistant attorney general. A lot of times they give it to some guy fresh out of college, but they put their best people on this one.”
