BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Louisiana lawmaker is puzzled over a vote in the Senate.
Cox said he is surprised by the outcome.
"I really don't understand," Cox said. "I'll go talk and find out because it's a $6 test and AIDS for one person that gets AIDS, we're talking about millions of dollars and that person spreads it to five contacts a year is what they say."
While the bill failed, Cox may still have a chance. After the vote, Senate leaders decided to reconsider the bill another day.
The Senate floor is the bill's last stop before it would reach Gov. Bobby Jindal's desk.
