Today, we’re unveiling a series of white papers about the Chamber’s legislative priorities. The first is about our top priority: Transportation and Infrastructure.
We’ve been talking about increasing the gas tax and increasing funding for our crumbling roads and bridges for years. This white paper should put many of the statistics, the myths, and the competing plans into plain English for you.
These white papers are meant to be accessible: Easy to read for non-policy wonks (like those of us policy geeks who live and breathe these details). We hope you take a few minutes to learn about these issues and why our Legislative Issues Committee, Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and Chamber Board think these are important to our Investors.
In the next eight weeks, we’ll be explaining a number of other issues important to Greenville’s economy but hard to understand: foreign trade deals, lawsuit abuse reform, the Abbeville school funding decision. If you have ideas of topics you’d like us to investigate and explain, please feel free to let us know.
We hope you find these white papers to be another benefit of your Chamber investment. And, as always, if you have questions about public policy and how it impacts your business, please feel free to call or email us any time.
