Louisiana OMV to allow same-sex couples to change their names on driver's licenses

Same-sex couples in Louisiana can now change their names on their driver’s license and vehicle registration forms.

Officials with the Office of Motor Vehicles say they have upgraded their system to accommodate same-sex couples wishing to change their name. Same-sex couples can apply for changes on Monday

Louisiana had been putting off any name changes on driver’s licenses and vehicle for same-sex couples. Many applied to have their name changed at the Office of Motor Vehicles following the ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court recognizing same-sex marriage on June 26. The couples were turned away.

A dry, hot Monday

Big storms Sunday saw nearly 100 percent coverage. Monday will be far quieter.

You can almost never rule out a shower in the summer, but coverage Monday looks slim... maybe 10 percent.

It will remain mostly dry and hot through most of the week. We could see a bump in rain chances by the end of the week, but nothing like what moved through the region Sunday.
