The State Gaming Control Board has ok'd the plan to bring another riverboat to Bossier City. The Isle of Capri Casino's Lake Charles license will be transferred to the newly-formed Bossier Casino Venture, LLC, which plans to build a massive gambling complext just north of the Louisiana Boardwalk.

It is now up to the voters in Bossier Parish to decide if the project should get the green light.  The measure will be on the ballot on November 19th. The casino, if approved, would mean more than a thousand permanent jobs and about 500 jobs during construction.
