Bill Expands Alexandria Port to Include Whole Parish

A bill to expand the Alexandria Port to include all of Rapides parish and give it a regional name is approved by the state house yesterday and now heads to the senate.

The bill leaves out Avoyelles and Grant parishes, but their representatives are now creating their own port commissions.

The bill is co-sponsored by Lance Harris and Jeff Hall. Representatives Terry Brown of Grant parish and Robert Johnson of Avoyelles cast the only votes against the bill but did not voice their opposition.
