In response to the infrastructure plan released today by President Trump, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

"President Trump’s plan is a bold initiative to address America’s crumbling infrastructure and move our country forward. The administration’s unconventional approach is timely, as we need to limit federal spending while boosting investments in our infrastructure. The President’s proposal creates new incentives and promotes collaboration between all levels of government and the private sector. President Trump has repeatedly expressed support for Interstate 73, most certainly a transformative project, and it’s perfectly suited for his infrastructure plan.”
