BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal has vetoed a package of bills that would have tweaked the state's video poker laws. The conservative Louisiana Family Forum asked him to scrap the bills, which were designed to deregulate gambling operations in the state. 

The conservative Louisiana Family Forum is asking Gov. Bobby Jindal to veto three bills that tweak the state's video poker laws.

In a letter sent to the governor, Family Forum leader Gene Mills says the changes would deregulate video poker.

One measure, sponsored by Republican Sen. Danny Martiny, would remove the mandatory license revocation requirement for a video poker operator who has three or more violations for letting someone under 21 years old play video poker.
