STATEMENT ON NEW BILOXI BAY BRIDGE

I appreciate President Bush, Transportation Secretary Norm Mineta and the Federal Highway Administration for their cooperation and support. The federal decision to allow a higher bridge will help economic development on the coast and the federal government's willingness to pay 100 percent of the cost of the new, higher bridge is an important commitment that will help our state.

When Transportation Commissioner Wayne Brown asked me to help, I was pleased to go to Washington and make our case for the higher bridge.
