Letter was sent requesting to jumpstart port deepening

Posted: Updated:
Savannah -

Fourteen Georgia Congressmen are asking the Chairman of a house budget subcommittee to help them jump-start the deepening of the port here in Savannah.

In a letter to Idaho Representative Mike Simpson, the Congressman asked for a second round of budget language. This will reclassify the $652 million harbor expansion as a project under construction, rather than one still under study.

Thus waiving an outdated spending cap from 1999.
