Caddo Commissioner Steven Jackson talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about House Bill 667, the legislation proposed by Shreveport Rep. Cedric Glover that would redefine the city's Redevelopment Board.

The bill, which, in it's current incarnation would call for the board to be made up of five members, is being criticized because of the members would be appointed by the Mayor of Shreveport. Jackson, who supports the measure, points out that all members would have to be confirmed by the City Council.
