U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA), and U.S. Representatives Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Mike Johnson (R-LA) and John Ratcliffe (R-TX) today introduced legislation to create the Caddo Lake National Heritage Area (S. 2947 and H.R. 5957). The area proposed by the Caddo National Heritage Area Commission (CNHAC) is a 900-square-mile geographic area on the Texas-Louisiana border that encompasses Caddo Lake, contiguous bayous, and a portion of the Red River.
This is an update by the Collins academy to the initial Caddo Lake National Heritage legislation proposal by Senator Gohmert.
