A.  Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, except as otherwise permitted in Subsection B of this Section, any election required by Article XII, Section 6(C) of the Constitution of Louisiana may be called only by an enactment of the legislature which specifically authorizes each such election.

B.  If the election is required by Article XII, Section 6(C)(2) of the Constitution of Louisiana, then such an election may be called either by law or by the adoption of a resolution or ordinance of the governing authority of the parish in which such an election would be required provided the license to conduct such riverboat gaming has been approved, subject to the outcome of the election, by the Gaming Control Board prior to the authorization for the election.  The election authorized by this Subsection shall only apply to those parishes in which a majority of the electors of the parish voted to permit riverboat gaming  in the election authorized in R.S. 18:1300.21, and conducted at the 1996 congressional general election.
