Senate Bill 460: Tying Drivers Licenses to School Attendance
Senator Lambert Boissiere, Jr. (D), District 3.
This bill would require any person under eighteen to submit proof that he or she is attending school, using a form to be prepared by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
03/31/2003 Referred to the Senate Committee on Transportation, Highways, and Public Works.
None. This bill is now dead.
Neutral. Louisiana already requires attendance in school until the age of eighteen, although truancy enforcement has been largely ineffective. While this bill should not, in theory, harm homeschoolers, it gives the Department of Motor Vehicles a chance to write up a new form which may or may not be sensitive to home education.
