Jindals signature is a bill that would limit where welfare recipients can use federal money. Under the new law people with Louisiana Purchase Cards (Louisiana EBT) would no longer be allowed to use those funds at lingerie shops, nail salons, tattoo parlors and any business with an age restriction of 18 or older.
