SENATE PANEL HEARING ON CROWN BAY PUT OFF

Dec. 17, 2001 – A Senate committee hearing that had been announced for Wednesday night on the proposed Crown Bay development project by two cruise lines and the Port Authority has been postponed until next year.
Sen. Emmett Hansen II, chair of the Government Operations Committee, postponed the meeting because the chief officers of Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and Carnival Cruise Lines aren't able to appear this week, according to a Hansen aide.
Senators raised questions last week about the agreement. Sen. Carlton Dowe wrote Gov. Charles W. Turnbull urging him to turn down the agreement in favor of a V.I. government backed development.
