The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce recently held a news conference with members of the state’s House and Senate to laud the passage of H.3516.
The new law, which was advanced by large majorities in both the House and the Senate, should alleviate taxes on hardworking families. It also seeks to reform the Department of Transportation and fund multi-year upkeep for bridges and roads in South Carolina.
The bill has been celebrated by the state’s business community, which believes H.3516 is in the best interest of the people of the state.
Attending the news conference were House Speaker Jay Lucas, Senate President Pro Tempore Hugh Leatherman, Chamber President and CEO Ted Pitts, Chamber Board Chair Barbara Melvin, Sonoco CEO and Incoming Chamber Board Chair Jack Sanders, Michelin North America Chairman and President Pete Selleck; and members of the General Assembly.
The event took place in the second-floor lobby at the South Carolina Statehouse.
