President Biden to Visit Lake Charles May 6 to Talk about the American Jobs Plan
Published May 1, 2021
President Joe Biden will be visiting Lake Charles on May 6, 2021, to talk about his American Jobs Plan.
One of the goals of the American Jobs Plan is to rebuild the country’s infrastructure, which includes rebuilding bridges like the I-10 Calcasieu River Bridge in Lake Charles, and improving the electric grid so that it is not so vulnerable to extended outages like the ones caused by the 2020 hurricanes and the Winter storm of 2021. Other goals of the plan include creating jobs and positioning the US to out-compete China.
Biden previously visited Lake Charles in 2010 as vice president.
President Biden is also expected to visit New Orleans during his trip to Louisiana.
A Lake Charles man has been arrested and charged with possession of CDS I with intent to distribute; 2 counts of possession of CDS II; possession of CDS IV; possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; and illegal possession of a firearm in the presence of a CDS after the C.A.T. team executed a search warrant at an apartment on 5th Avenue.
The LA 385 (Ryan Street) northbound right lane will be closed at East Claude Street on Monday, May 10.
Two people from Lake Charles have been arrested and charged with possession of CDS I with intent to distribute (ecstasy); possession of CDS I with intent to distribute (synthetic marijuana); possession of marijuana; possession of drug paraphernalia; money laundering transaction involving proceeds of criminal activity; and illegal use of a CDS in the presence of a juvenile following the execution of search warrants.
