Economic forecasters say good news could be ahead for Shreveport Bossier. Economist Dr. Loren Scott says our region has been on the decline since 2009, but he sees a brighter future ahead.

Dr. Scott projects the region could be adding more than 1500 high paying jobs over the next 24 months. He says the oil and gas industry will see a bit of a boom with increased production in the Haynesville Shale region.

Dr. Scott tells KEEL News jobs at Barksdale and the Cyber Innovation Center will also help give our economy a boost.
