The Louisiana House of Representatives this week voted 55-38 against a measure that would have allowed public high school students to be surveyed about sex-related risk behaviors as part of a national survey addressing teen health matters. House Bill 393’s author, Rep. Pat Smith (D-Baton Rouge), said the survey would help collect information on teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, while opponents argued it could lead to more sex among youths.
