Governor Nikki Haley today released the following statement in response to the decision by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to study deepening the Charleston Port:
"As I recruit companies and jobs to South Carolina, one of the main topics of conversation is always our ports. South Carolina is in the unique position to lead the nation in economic development if we can strengthen and deepen the Charleston port. I am very proud of the work and cooperation of our federal delegation for getting this done, and for doing so without falling back on the earmark process that has been damaging to our nation in so many ways. It is a great day for South Carolina."
