From South Carolina Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Ted Pitts:

“The state’s business community praises the leadership of Speaker Jay Lucas, Representative Gary Simrill (chairman of the Ad-Hoc Transportation Committee) and the House of Representatives on passing a bill that provides much needed funding for our state’s infrastructure,” said Ted Pitts, president and CEO of the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce. “Their action is an acknowledgement that another year must not pass without addressing the state’s growing infrastructure problem, an issue that has galvanized the energy and attention of business leaders - small and large - from every corner of the state. We applaud the House for leading on dedicating sustainable and recurring resources to maintain and improve our infrastructure. Now, the Senate must take action and debate and pass funding for infrastructure.”
