Speak Out Editorial - 02/12/15

 South Carolina has some of the poorest roads in the country. It also has one of the lowest gas taxes. Governor Nikki Haley has recommended that the gas tax be raised by 10 cents a gallon to help fund needed improvements.

She's also said that she will only support the gas tax increase if there's a corresponding cut in state income taxes to attract new business. One of the attractive features of Haley's plan is its ability to share some of the burden of road improvements with people driving on the roads, including tourists and travelers just passing through.

South Carolina's roads need help. This bill sends us in the right direction. We support it.
