This holiday season, we gather with our families to share in laughter, hugs, and a great big meal. We also count our blessings, the things that we have to be grateful for. Here at SCFOR, we too are counting our blessings. We are thankful that this year South Carolina journeyed further down the path to fixing our roads.
This past legislative session, the General Assembly passed the most successful road funding bill since 2013. The bill, S.1258 (Act 275), secured over $200 million in recurring revenues and leveraging more than $2 billion bonds for highway capacity and bridge projects over 10 years. We could not have accomplished this without the dedicated support of our membership and all those who contacted their legislator. We stood together, my fellow South Carolinians, and we prevailed.
While the journey is far from over, we can take this minute to pause and reflect on the progress that has been made.
Best wishes to you and yours this Thanksgiving!
