And Alabama proposes to build the plant right on the Mobile River, going to
Mobile Bay right out to the Gulf.


"I hate to say this but don't discount Alabama's chances of getting
plant. They are very business oriented here and have landed a number
automobile plants going back to the Mercedes-Benz plant in Vance AL
in the
80's I believe. I think anything Alabama has to offer Louisiana can
match so
I'm hoping we get it. JLY"

**True, but one determining factor is a huge body of water that runs
adjacent to the proposed plant half-way between Baton Rouge and New
It's a plus to have shipping of materials right from the river.

If we lose it, it'll be a quick spiral for Ms. Bunko, for sure,
losing a
chance for 3000 jobs and tons of bucks fusioned into the economy
that can't
afford to build roads.
