MEDIA STATEMENT

In response to S.C. House and Senate passage of House Bill #3516, the Road Improvement Legislation, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

“We applaud the decisive action taken this week by the South Carolina House and Senate to invest in our statewide infrastructure. For too long, we have neglected maintenance of our roads and bridges, which impedes economic growth and costs local taxpayers nearly $1,800 annually. While the final legislation is far from perfect, it provides revenues, reform and modest tax relief. We thank the representatives and senators who supported this necessary compromise. Their leadership was a vote for safer roads, more jobs and lower taxes.”
