In response to the South Carolina Assembly passage of S 105, commonly referred to as the Automatic Stay Bill, a bill that limits the time frame in which infrastructure projects can be delayed by individuals or groups without first properly demonstrating legal grounds or standing, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

"We applaud the passage of S 105 by the South Carolina General Assembly, as changes to the Automatic Stay Law were long overdue. Modernizing this law protects taxpayers, enhances job creation and prevents obstructionists from holding important infrastructure projects hostage. We should never allow vital infrastructure projects like International Drive--a project widely supported by the public--to be held up by organizations that operate only for their self-serving interests. This new law establishes an appropriate balance between protecting our environment and growing our economy - a win-win for our community and businesses.”
