House Is Committed to Finding Long-term Solution

 

(Columbia, SC) – House Speaker Jay Lucas (District 65-Darlington) issued the following statement in response to Senate movement on a roads bill:

 

“For 323 days, the Senate has had every opportunity to show leadership and propose a real, long-term solution for road repair in South Carolina. The current Senate amendment simply kicks the can further down the road and frankly, into a pothole. The General Assembly has been using general fund dollars to slap a band-aid on roads for years with very little to show for it. I urge the Senate to give this issue the attention that it requires and rally around a proposal with a long-term solution that keeps our families safe and our economy thriving.”
