An earlier law has been repealed. A law related to reporting requirements, effective through June 30, 2005, had mandated that a council on "chemically exposed infants and children" be created. One of the primary duties of the council included data collection with regard to the extent to which infants born in Louisiana were chemically exposed. A "chemically exposed infant or child" was an infant or child who showed evidence of exposure to or the presence of alcohol. La. Rev. Stat. Ann. §§ 46:2512, 46:2514. These laws were repealed as of July 1, 2005.

In general, all laws enacted during a regular session of the Louisiana legislature take effect on August 15th of the calendar year in which the regular session is held; however, any bill may specify an earlier or later effective date. 2007 La. Acts 396 states that its reporting provision will not become effective until the legislature appropriates sufficient funds for such purposes. APIS is unable to determine whether this condition has been met.
