Savannah Harbor Expansion Bill Signed in to Law
State / National
President Obama signed the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 (WRRDA) in to law on Tuesday (June 10, 2014). WRRDA is especially significant for Georgia as it allows the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project to move forward by authorizing Georgia to enter a Project Partnership Agreement with the Corps of Engineers and to identify how the state and federal government will share the costs of the project. Georgia Ports Authority Executive Director Curtis Foltz expects this agreement to be binding within 90 days. This is the first time in seven years that Congress has passed a water resource bill, so WRRDA marks incredible progress for our Nation's transportation infrastructure.
