So it appears the Markell administration was so confident they would sell off their port, they put no money into the budget to cover it….
The answer is rather simple. If you need $20 million a year, write a new tax that begins at levels over $1 million dollars and get the $20 million from them….
How hard is that?
or you could increase port fees a few cents per ton…
Then, ask Siemans who they would recommend as a consultant if you were interested in finding a European buyer for our port…..
