Jindal raises fines up to $1,000 for city law violations 

  With his signature, Gov. Bobby Jindal has raised the fines for violations to New Orleans' city ordinances. House Bill 789 (now Act 637) by state Rep. Helena Moreno, D-New Orleans, caps the fines at $1,000, doubling the current cap of $500. The law goes into effect Aug. 1.

  While the law excludes fines for moving and parking violations, it could impact blight, noise and other quality-of-life violations.

  Under the new law, first offenses will have a $500 cap, while second and other offenses will have the $1,000 cap. The measure received New Orleans City Council approval in March.
