House Clerk: Champagne still domiciled in district

The clerk of the Louisiana House of Representatives says State Representative Simone Champagne is still domiciled in her district.

Published reports say Champagne and her husband sold their Jeanerette home.

Speer says Champagne did indeed change her address with his office. However, Speer says the new address is inside District 49.

Speer says that per the state constitution, a legislator's domicile is the place where he/she intends to reside. Speer adds that a member of the House could call for an investigation into whether Champagne is domiciled in her district.

KATC reached out to Champagne, who was unavailable for comment.

Champagne announced last year that she would not seek reelection in 2015.
