GREENSBURG, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The St. Helena Parish Police Jury has voted to pass a resolution to exempt existing sexually oriented businesses from new ordinances enacted two weeks ago to regulate such businesses in the parish.

The resolution, which board attorney Clifton Speed said has no actual legal power, was approved 4-2 on Tuesday.

The police jury voted June 11 to adopt two changes to the parish code to control and regulate sexually oriented businesses in St. Helena.

The first change amends the chapter that regulates alcohol licenses for local businesses. The change will prohibit nudity and "certain physical contact" between patrons and employees of licensed alcohol-serving businesses.

The second change creates a new chapter to license and regulate "sexually oriented businesses and employees."
