Attorney General Jeff Landry Statement on Critical, Bipartisan Drug Court Bill

BATON ROUGE, LA - Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement on SB 145:

“Louisiana is in the midst of opioid and violent crime epidemics. Families throughout our State have been devastated by drug misuse and abuse. Working together across political party lines, the Legislature unanimously passed a bill that would improve and expand Louisiana’s drug court program - an effective and efficient way to treat addicts and give them second chances at productive lives. This crime-reducing measure was passed by the Legislature and received by the Governor on June 1st. Unfortunately, the Governor has chosen to play Washington-style politics with this important piece of legislation. I trust the Legislature will continue to work in a bipartisan manner to move forward with this plan to mitigate our State’s drug and crime crises.”
