SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — The chairman of a U.S. House committee that recently held a key vote for the Port of Savannah is scheduled to visit as a guest of Georgia Rep. Jack Kingston. Kingston, a Savannah Republican, planned a news conference Wednesday at the Georgia Ports Authority headquarters with Rep. Bill Shuster of Pennsylvania. Shuster is chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which last week approved a bill that would eliminate a bureaucratic hurdle to deepening the shipping channel to the Savannah port. The bill would remove a spending cap of $459 million placed on the Savannah harbor project in 1999. The Army Corps of Engineers now estimates the harbor deepening will cost $652 million. The Senate has already passed a version of the water projects bill now before the House.
