HOUMA, La. (AP) - A committee will look into Terrebonne Parish’s laws covering bingo games for possible revisions.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1N1fUjF) the Terrebonne Parish Council formed the group at Monday night’s meeting.

Currently, bingo games are governed by both state and parish laws. State law does not place a cap on the number of bingo games that can be held in a week, but there cannot be more than 20 games in one venue in a month. The parish ordinance places a cap of two games in one venue in a week and no more than 15 a month.

Councilman Greg Hood’s proposal was for six games in a venue a week and no more than 20 games as per the state law.
