A southern Illinois lawmaker says he is encouraged about the future of a Port District in Cairo.

Senator Dale Fowler joined local officials Monday in Illinois' southernmost city to hear presentations from businesses out of New Orleans, Florida and Kentucky.

An effort to boost the economy of Cairo is moving forward as we start the New Year.

The Cairo Public Utility Company says the Rauner Family Foundation - a philanthropic vehicle for Governor Bruce Rauner and his wife Diana - helped kickstart the project with a 100-thousand dollar donation.
