One lawmaker is looking to crack down on crime this upcoming legislative session. Rep. Jared Brossett of New Orleans has pre-filed two bills that would do just that.

In one bill, Brossett wants a tougher penalty for those who "recklessly discharge" a firearm on or near a school campus. He says anyone convicted of the proposed new crime would be fined up to $5,000 and could be jailed for five to 10 years. He says children should not have to have their learning environment disrupted over senseless crimes.

Brossett has also filed a bill that would increase penalties for people who break-in to other's homes. He says they should face a 7-year sentence and a fine of $7,000 if they broke in with a dangerous weapon.
