January 23, 2019

COLUMBIA, S.C. – SC Chamber of Commerce President and CEO, Ted Pitts, today released the following statement regarding Governor Henry McMaster’s 2019 State of the State Address:

“Governor McMaster deserves credit tonight for calling on policy makers to work with him to address the two big issues that must be dealt with to keep South Carolina moving forward: education reform and comprehensive tax reform. The state’s business community looks forward to working with the Governor and legislative leaders to reform a tax code and education system both built for the last century, not today.”
