2010 Session

The 2010 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature began at noon on March 29, 2010 and adjourned before 6:00 p.m. on Monday, June 21, 2010. Being an even-numbered year, the 2010 Legislative Session was a general session (as opposed to the fiscal-only sessions held in odd-numbered years). This means that legislators were permitted to pre-file an unlimited number of non-tax bills.

Bills become law upon the signature of the Governor or, on August 15th, whichever comes first.

The Louisiana Public Defender Board has created summaries of legislation affecting criminal defense in Louisiana, with a separate breakout of changes in law affecting juvenile defense.

The summaries from the 2010 Legislative Session are available HERE
