SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The push in Washington to finalize funding for harbor deepening continues.

On Friday, Jack Kingston assured the channel will be deepened. He said he's confident about it after speaking with the chairman of the Energy and Transportation Committee.

"He said we are going to move this bill," said Kingston. "We are very, very close to getting it to the floor of the Senate and the House. Most of the Georgia delegation is on board with it, so we're feeling good about it. It's going to be done, despite the White House."

Kingston said 352,000 jobs depend on the deepening.
