Analysis:

Louisiana statute confers ex-officio Notary powers to a vast number of individuals working for various government offices throughout the state. SB 599 repeals the authority of the chief of police of the Crescent City Connection (Bridge) Police Department to designate police officers under his command and appoint them as ex officio Notaries Public. The Crescent City Bridge is comprised of twin cantilever bridges that carry U.S. Route 90 Business over the Mississippi River in New Orleans, LA. The removal of ex officio Notary powers is a part of SB 599 which transfers the Crescent City Connection from the Mississippi River Bridge Authority, which is being abolished, to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development.
