LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The commissioners who govern Lafayette Regional Airport are looking for minority-owned firms to participate in projects valued at $150 million, including construction of a new passenger terminal and runway improvements.

Commission Chairman Paul Guilbeau tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/24AWn4R) few firms in Acadiana are qualified under federal guidelines for the Disadvantaged Business Enterprises program.

Guilbeau says the commission will hold two educational meetings and a workshop in April in Lafayette.

The commission is having a committee review the qualifications of design and project management firms. Later this year, construction companies will submit their credentials as they vie to build the projects over the next three to five years.
