Visitors are big business in northwest Louisiana. Shreveport/Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau President Stacy Brown says Shreveport/Bossier is second only to New Orleans in terms of the number of visitors received and hotel rooms available. Brown says Shreveport/Bossier is very close to reaching ten-thousand available hotel/motel rooms and should hit that mark in the very near future. With those numbers as a backdrop, the Shreveport City Council has unanimously approved the Convention and Tourist Bureau's proposed 2012 budget.
