This hour, the expansion of State Pier in New London advanced with Friday's announcement of an agreement between the city and two companies taking part in the project.

But at the same time, the quasi-public state agency overseeing the project faces ongoing scrutiny.

The latest issue under investigation: the Connecticut Port Authority’s half-million-dollar payment to a company with ties to a former authority board member.

Guests:

Michael Passero -- New London Mayor 

John Henshaw -- Connecticut Port Authority Executive Director
