**Media Alert** Road Press Conference at State House Today

February 21, 2017

**Media Advisory**

2017 Paves the Way

With unanimous and bipartisan support from the House Ways and Means Committee and public support for passing a long-term road bill at an all-time high, 2017 represents the best chance to invest and secure the resources to fix South Carolina’s roads.

The state’s business community has long advocated for legislation that addresses the dedicated funding capabilities needed to repair our state’s crumbling roads and bridges. As such, we intend to convey our resounding support for H.3516, the House road funding bill.
