Georgetown County business and economic development officials plan to announce new business for the port this morning at 10 a.m.
A press conference will be held at the South Carolina Maritime Museum at 729 Front St.
Little information is available, but Allison Skipper with the State Ports Authority said business and county leaders will announce that new business will be coming through the Port of Georgetown.
Depth of the port and federal channel has dropped from 27 feet to 18 to 20 feet. That has reduced the size of ships that can utilize the break bulk Port of Georgetown.

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending lowering the legal blood alcohol content limit for drivers from .08 percent to .05 percent. They say it will decrease the number of traffic fatalities. Do you agree with this idea?
