The “Fix SC Roads” campaign represents SCFOR’s commitment to protecting and promoting our state’s economic growth and our citizens’ safety.
Our organization took up the banner of everyday South Carolinians who were sick and tired of the traffic, the danger, and the embarrassment that comes with crumbling roadways. For nearly five years, the Alliance advocated on behalf of South Carolinians to secure a plan that addresses the state’s infrastructure crisis.
Finally. South Carolina lawmakers listened to their constituents by acting to provide for the current and future needs of South Carolina roads.
The roads bill —Act 40—was decades in the making, and represents bi-partisan cooperation and compromise by both legislative bodies.
We knew that 2017 was the year to take action and reach a compromise solution. We commend the legislature for acting in the best interest of our state and providing for our infrastructure future.
After 30 years of inaction, we now have a plan to fix our roads. Moving forward, SCFOR will continue to promote the benefits provided by the passed legislation through voter education. We will also emphasize to voters the integral role of their lawmakers who supported the roads bill and recognized the importance of transportation investment.
