Directors of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber of Commerce have unanimously endorsed East Baton Rouge Parish’s Mayor-President Kip Holden’s proposed $989 million bond package that would fund an extensive public works and economic development effort. BRAC, representing business owners from nine parishes in the area, said the bond issue would be a needed stimulus for East Baton Rouge Parish and the region.

BRAC chief executive officer Adam Knapp said the board backs the plan “because it represents a major leap forward for our economic development and quality of life goals.”
