Delaware port board hears from Kinder Morgan

February 12, 2013

NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) -- Representatives of energy giant Kinder Morgan gave a presentation to the state board that oversees the Port of Wilmington.

Monday's presentation at a meeting of the Diamond State Port Corporation came as the Markell administration continues negotiations with Kinder Morgan over privatizing operations at Wilmington port.

Last month, lawmakers approved a bill giving the General Assembly a say before any privatization deal is signed.

Gov. Jack Markell signed the measure even though his administration opposed legislative interference, saying it could upset delicate negotiations and even torpedo a deal.
