In an unusual display of bipartisan support, Louisiana’s two U.S. Senators are backing a measure to extend the GO ZONE tax incentives for another two years for the parishes hardest hit by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Sen. Landrieu , a Democrat , is joining Sen. Vitter, a Republican , in sponsoring the bill which provides tax credits for low-income housing and historic rehab. projects.

The two Louisiana senators often vote against each other, thus canceling out a voice for all Louisianans.
