On the river dredging project, Maxwell said he hopes the project can get started soon and not drag on for years.

The deepening project traces its roots to 1983, when the U.S. Congress directed the Army Corps to study modifying the existing main shipping channel. A feasibility study that included numerous environmental and economic studies commenced in 1987 and approved the project to Congress, which in 1992 gave its authorization. Environmental groups have fought the expansion for years.
