Nikki Haley: Deepen the port of Charleston; return to greatness

Our ports are vital. No one will work harder to get the funding necessary to deepen the Port of Charleston--starting with the creation of a port infrastructure fund in this year's executive budget. Part of South Carolina's advantage in recruiting industry is the Port of Charleston. It is a huge part of why companies like Bridgestone & Michelin come to and expand in our state. From the first day of our Administration, I have worked with our federal delegation to clear away all of the impediments to making Charleston the premier port in the southeast--starting with getting the port to the depth of 50 feet. There has been much discussion about DHEC's decision and whether two viable ports in the region are good or bad for the economics of S.C. businesses and our state. I am not afraid of a 48-foot Georgia port, 36 miles up the Savannah River, confined to one-way traffic. You should not be either. Let's quit bickering and work together to see Charleston return to its greatness.
