SC Chamber Interim CEO Swati Patel's Statement on Governor McMaster's 2021 State of the State Address

“Governor McMaster deserves credit for focusing on policies to fully reopen our state’s economy tonight. His call to make passage of COVID liability protections for businesses, healthcare providers, and educational institutions doing the right thing by following public health guidance a priority is key to that goal. We also thank him for prioritizing the expansion of broadband availability, incorporating an income tax cut, valuing our teachers, and focusing on workforce training and reskilling. The business community looks forward to working with the Governor and legislators to get these priorities across the finish line, in addition to the passage of a hate crimes law this session.”
