POOLER, GA (WTOC) -

Congressman Jack Kingston was back in Savannah Monday to talk issues.

WTOC was able to catch up with Kingston at the Savannah Hilton Head International Airport.

Kingston discussed the May Primary Election and Georgia Ports in Savannah. He said he has been working around the clock to get the Ports Deepening Project started.

"I have weekly contact, sometimes daily contact, with the chairman of the committee, Bill Schuster from Pennsylvania," said Kingston. "The part that is in contention has nothing to do with the Savannah River, as much as anything, there is a dispute over the overall spending level.

Congressman Kingston plans to get the bill to the House by May 1.
