Senators Perdue, Isakson, & Rep. Carter Invite Administration To Port Of Savannah

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA), and U.S. Representative Buddy Carter (R-GA) invite President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to visit the Port of Savannah to see first-hand fastest-growing port in the country and learn more about the on-going expansion project.

“The Savannah Harbor Expansion Project is one of the most important infrastructure projects in the country with the largest return on investment of any project the Army Corps of Engineers is currently managing,” said Senator Perdue. “We personally invite President Trump and Vice President Pence to come visit the Port of Savannah and see for themselves why the fastest-growing port in the country is the greatest leverage to our nation’s economic growth. As a business guy, I’ve seen the value of investing in projects that will provide an economic return. It’s critical we continue fighting to prioritize our investment in this top infrastructure project that helps our country compete globally.”

Completion of the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project will have a significant impact on our country’s economy, especially the Southeast region of the country. To move the project forward, Senator Perdue continues to work with the Georgia delegation to increase federal support and cooperation with local and state government.
