A MESSAGE FROM SOUTH CAROLINA’S STATE TREASURER …
The special interests are at it again. They’ve designed a $42 billion wish list to “fix” South Carolina’s roads, but it is riddled with potholes and dead ends.
Bureaucrats and politicans always want our money, but the desired results rarely follow. In this plan, the tax is real – the rest is only a promise.
South Carolinians deserve a safe and reliable infrastructure because it is essential to our State’s economic growth and prosperity. But a gas tax increase will only fuel special interests, damage job creation, and cost South Carolinians more at the pump.
Let’s not build a $42 billion road to nowhere. Join me in urging your representatives and senators to say no new gas taxes.
South Carolina Treasurer
Treasurer Loftis: Thank you! This website has opined against governor Nikki Haley’s proposed tax swap as well as the S.C. General Assembly’s proposed gas tax trickeration – both of which include massive gas tax increases. Glad to see you taking a principled stand.
