BATON ROUGE- A law banning certain schools from being a member of any interscholastic extra-curricular athletic association or organization that does not provide for third-party arbitration of eligibility issues finally passed the Senate Tuesday.

The item, by Senator Dan Claitor takes aim at the LHSAA and comes after Clement Mubungwira, 19, of Episcopal High, was denied the chance to play in the fall because of his age. Mubungwira is a year behind since he immigrated to the United States from the Congo at 12-years-old and had to learn English.

The proposal moves to the House after the vote, where there were 21 yeas and 17 nays.
