Senator Webb Visits Norfolk International Terminals

U.S. Sen. Jim Webb visited Norfolk International Terminals on Tuesday. And what a bad day for a port tour. Freezing rain and nasty winds kept Webb and his staff huddled up in the Virginia Port Authority’s Jeff Keever’s car for the three-stop tour of the waterfront, but Webb had quite a bit to say once inside. Along with fellow Senate Democrat Mark Warner, Webb is pushing for $50 million in federal funding for the long-awaited Craney Island Marine Terminal construction project. That’s a big number, especially in light of the mere $100,000 Congress appropriated to the project in Fiscal 2011.
