President Donald Trump is seeking another $49 million funding installment for deepening Savannah's busy shipping channel.

The $973 million dredging project for the Port of Savannah has been under way for more than two years. The Georgia Ports Authority says it needs about $100 million annually to avoid construction delays. Trump requested roughly half that amount in his budget Monday, as he did last year.
