    Irrigation now requires a state issued license in Louisiana. Contact the dept of Agriculture, they'll give you the needed information and how to get a booklet. You can study the book, must pass the test with a 70 I think....

    Gautreaux is right......The law was passed "in the dead of night" with ZERO input from the Landscape Contractors in the state. I've had several conversations with Horticulture Commission about this.

    The funny thing is there's a way around it...ROFLMAO

    Look for some suprises when it comes back before the legislature.
