Holden planning for another bond proposal
BATON ROUGE- Baton Rouge Mayor Kip Holden says he will support putting another bond proposal on the October or November ballot.
The mayor says details are being ironed out. Voters rejected other recent tax increases that included everything from money for a downtown tourist attraction to roads and crime prevention.
Mayor Holden says the attraction will not be part of this year's plan which he expects to cost around $700 million dollars.
