Today (July 1) Governor Bobby Jindal signed Louisiana House Bill 668 into law. Sea turtle conservation groups are welcoming the new law because it will give Louisiana law enforcement officers the power to inspect shrimp boats for Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDs), which allow sea turtles to escape drowning via a turtle-sized hatch on the trawl nets. Gov. Bobby Jindal vetoed a similar bill passed by the legislature in 2010.
