A bill to ban drivers from using their phone with their hands while on the road failed to pass the House floor after an, at times, contentious debate. The legislation by Breaux Bridge Representative Mike Huval was inspired by the traffic deaths of a constituent’s child. Huval says it’s a bill designed to save lives.

The state has unveiled its new "I'm Cajun...and Proud" specialty license plates. Breaux Bridge Rep. Mike Huval sponsored the legislation last Spring that created the plates. He says the plates' design simply smacks of Acadiana, the familar fleur-de-lis and a Cajun crawfish playing an accordion.
