What are the boating laws in Louisiana?

If you want to enjoy the many waterways in Louisiana, then you need to understand the boating laws. According to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, there are some restrictions and requirements in place to ensure you are safe when boating. This starts with a requirement for everyone operating a motorboat of at least 10 horsepower who was born after the first day in 1984 to take and successfully complete a boating education course. You must also carry proof that you passed the course with you when you are boating.

How can I file a HIPPA complaint?

When you receive medical care in Louisiana, you have probably been asked to sign a document related to HIPPA. HIPPA is a law that protects your medical information. It set requirements for how such information is shared and stored. If you feel there has been a violation of HIPPA, you have the right to report it.

Getting the facts on FDA recalls

Under federal law, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is empowered to require private companies to issue recalls in the event a product is discovered to be defective or harmful to the public. Such recalls, according to the FDA, are issued under one of three different classifications. The severity of the product’s potential harm is classified in ascending order by three different levels. Each classification gives the Louisiana public a general idea of how defective and dangerous the product is.
