|Baton Rouge Senator Dan Claitor wants to settle the argument over whether voters should have the opportunity to elect someone who is over 70 years old. State judges are not allowed to be elected after the age of 70 and Claitor has proposed a constitutional amendment that prohibits a person over the age of 70 from running for a statewide position or the legislature.
"I think it's discrimination based on age. Might as well discrminate against the entire over 70 bunch as opposed not just part of it."

Baton Rouge Representative Pat Smith wants some convicted criminals to serve house arrest if they have kids at home. It’s part of a proposed bill that would give judges more flexibility on deciding how to punish parents who have committed non-violent crimes.
"The idea of bill is to really look at how you can keep families together," Smith said. "The judge has the discretion of determining if they are a caregiver depending on the crime that has been committed." More
