Your lawmakers need to hear from you.
Today, the South Carolina House of Representatives are set to begin debating H.3516, a real plan to fix our crumbling roads and bridges.

That's why we need you stand with us in the fight to #FIXSCROADS. Tell your legislator that you support H.3516 and safe roads for South Carolina!

Our Coalition has long advocated for legislation that addresses the funding capabilities needed to repair our state's crumbling roads and bridges. As such, we intend to convey our resounding support for H.3516 - which will provide meaningful improvements for South Carolina's residents, workers, and businesses.
Please take the time to join us and let your representative know that you support H.3516, a long term solution to #FIXSCROADS. South Carolina cannot wait another year for sustainable road funding legislation.
