ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The subject during the Board of Public Works meeting Wednesday was wetlands licenses, but Comptroller Peter Franchot brought up the thing that everyone was actually thinking about.

Ever Forward, the enormous container ship stuck in the Chesapeake Bay that has been a nearly one-month headache for the U.S. Coast Guard, the Port of Baltimore and the Department of the Environment, had become a concern for the governor, the comptroller and the state’s treasurer.

The ship left Baltimore late on March 13, and steered outside the Craighill Channel and became lodged on the bottom just off the shores of Pasadena.
