To the editor: The governor wants to spend $4.7 million ($10 million total) for a feasibility study on the new port at Southport. This is in addition to the $30 million the state still owes the federal government for the current Wilmington Harbor Project.
And let’s not forget the $225,000 the state is spending on a study for a new road to the port when the land for the port is still unpaid ($30 million).
I thought we were in a fiscal crisis? So far, the state is in hock for $60 million and the governor wants to add millions to that total.
