A few months ago I reported on that bad piece of legislation proposed in Louisiana that would turn private investigators into stalkers. HB 51 changes the crime of stalking to”intentional”, repeated following of someone. It was passed by the House Commerce Committee with an exemption for Louisiana licensed private investigators, which was not in the original bill. The persistent folks in the Louisiana Private Investigators Association (LPIA) saw this one all the way through. Send them a love letter. Or, better yet, join and contribute funds, because the challenges to our work are not diminishing.
In disapointing news, the Missouri legislature fails, for yet another session, to mandate licensing for private investigators, Ron Rugen reports.
