Charleston's Veterans Terminal is ours, says ports authority

April 28 - South Carolina State Ports Authority (SCSPA) has issued a strong response to a recent article in the Charleston Regional Business Journal which suggests that leading US Senate lawmakers recently offered to transfer ownership of SCSPA's Veterans

According to the port authority, Veterans Terminal is a 110 acre dedicated bulk, break-bulk, ro-ro and project cargo facility located on the Cooper River. 

The newspaper article quotes North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey as saying "I'm interested in Veterans Terminal, but not at the cost of everything else we've done."

Byron D. Miller, director, Public Relations - SCSPA, stated to HLPFI: "The SCSPA has absolutely no plans to vacate Veterans Terminal. The SCSPA has a very favorable long-term lease on the Veterans Terminal property with the opportunity to purchase. We are focused on bringing more business to the facility - we've been successful in this regard recently and look forward to new cargo accounts."

Whether or how the Legislature could transfer ownership of the land from one public body to another is not exactly clear.
