Expanding the Baton Rouge and New Orleans Ports

Baton Rouge and New Orleans owes its very existence to its location at the mouth of the Mississippi River and its usefulness as a gateway port to the two thirds of the North American continent. As Louisiana’s 2nd Congressional District Representative I will work to re-establish the Ports of Baton Rouge and New Orleans as the pre-imminent gateway to North America through modernization and expansion of container vessel capabilities. Today, the ports compete with other Gulf of Mexico ports and are often losing out to ports such as Houston due to its container capacity. Baton Rouge and New Orleans must upgrade the ports and bring new capacities which in turn will bring jobs, commerce and economic growth to our District. Gary Landrieu will work to expand economic opportunity for our oil and gas industry and chemical plants in our parish.
