BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

A proposal totaling $195 million and expected to create 1200 new, permanent jobs in the Ark-La-Tex will be up for a vote in Bossier Parish this coming weekend; however, the proposal faces some local opposition.

On Saturday, November 19th, voters will decide to expand riverboat gambling to include the new Margaritaville Resort, Hotel and Casino.

Those against the new casino say the idea of the Margaritaville Casino and what it appears it will do for the area is deceiving.

So what exactly is the proposal about?

Tonight on KSLA News 12 at 6, Adria Goins takes a closer look at the $195 million proposal and details the pro's and con's of yet another riverboat casino in the area.
