Jindal has supported the plan by Sen. Neil Riser. That measured maintains two northern seats as a result of the reapportionment requirements due to the most recent census results. Louisiana will have six Congressmen instead of seven.
The Riser plan features two north-south districts. One would be anchored in Shreveport, the other in Monroe.
Sources say that the bill will be brought up again for consideration.
