Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin said that reopening the Patapsco River channel is critical to the state’s economy.

“It affects many, many jobs. It affects not only jobs here in Maryland, but around the country and world. So our next priority is make sure we get that channel opened and then we also need to fix and replace the bridge for the surface transportation,” Cardin said during a news conference Tuesday.
