The “Fix SC Roads” campaign represents SCFOR’s commitment to protecting and promoting our state’s economic growth and our citizens’ safety.
SCFOR 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 additional funding to be used solely for the improvement of our state’s roads and bridges.
The roads bill —Act 40—was decades in the making, and represents bi-partisan cooperation and compromise. We commend the legislature for acting in the best interest of our state and providing resources to begin improving our state’s infrastructure.
Moving forward, SCFOR will continue to promote the benefits provided by the passed legislation through voter education as well as continuing to educate the public and elected officials on the importance of investing in South Carolina’s transportation infrastructure.
