S.C. Chamber Releases Statement On S.1258 Being Signed Into Law

June 8, 2016

COLUMBIA, S.C. –State Chamber President Ted Pitts issued the following statement after Governor Haley signed S.1258, the roads bill, into law:

“The state’s business community thanks Governor Haley for her commitment to fixing South Carolina’s roads and bridges demonstrated by her signing of S.1258 today. We agree with the Governor that this bill is far from perfect and falls woefully short of a sustainable, long-term solution to a problem that has plagued our state for too long. However, we also agree that the bill the Governor has signed into law today is better than what we have in terms of governance and funding, and is a step in the right direction. The Chamber will continue to make infrastructure a top priority, and we look forward to working with the Governor and the General Assembly on a long-term solution to fix our state’s roads and bridges.”
