House committee rejects restoring funding for Jimmie Davis Bridge project


SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A bill authored by State Representative Cedric Glover, which would have restored $100 million in state funding to rebuild the Jimmie Davis Bridge was rejected Monday by the House Appropriations Committee.

The money was diverted by the state two years ago, placing any plans for the bridge’s replacement on hold.
