Cummings: Port Security Must Be Top Priority

Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md) released the following statement after Governor Robert Ehrlich held a news conference on the proposed sale of Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O), which is responsible for managing operations at several of the public terminals at the Port of Baltimore.

"I am surprised that Governor Ehrlich has not taken a more aggressive stance in opposing the sale of the Port's stevedore company to a firm owned by the government of Dubai. As the State's Chief Executive Officer, he is responsible for the Maryland Port Administration, which oversees the public terminals at the Port of Baltimore."
