BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A bid to put restrictions on how lawmakers can dole out their Tulane University scholarships has been rejected by the Louisiana House.

Rep. Harold Ritchie, a Democrat from Bogalusa, sought to prohibit lawmakers from giving scholarships to students whose family members have contributed to their campaigns. His bill also would have required publication of information saying if a scholarship recipient is related to an elected official.

The House voted 53-44 against the proposal Wednesday.
