NEWS ARTICLES:
Sanford: Joint port project with Ga. on track
Associated Press
Tuesday, September 23, 2008



BEAUFORT — South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford has written a letter to
Jasper County residents saying a project to build a port owned by Georgia
and South Carolina along the Savannah River is on track.

The Beaufort Gazette reports that Sanford's letter last week said the
next step is for a committee of officials from both states to choose a
company to make preliminary plans and oversee studies that must be done.

Sanford says he thinks the port is far enough along that it would be
difficult for the next governor in either state to derail the project.

The 1,400-acre port will be on the South Carolina side of the river in
Jasper County.
