Senate President John Hainkel created the Senate Select Committee on the Millennium Port in an effort to move forward with plans for the development and operation of a new deep water port system in Louisiana. Senator Hainkel, who serves as the committee's chairman, authored the 1999 legislation creating the Millennium Port Authority to lead Louisiana’s effort to develop a new port system to serve the new giant freighters and containerized cargo that are becoming more prevalent in the maritime industry, but very little has been done by the authority so far. The select committee will focus on site selection, comprehensive fact-finding and policy development efforts related to the port. - excerpt from  the Senate Public Information Office.
