Tomorrow morning the South Carolina Senate will cast an important vote to allow the infrastructure funding bill (H.3579) to receive special order, meaning it will be debated.

As you know, infrastructure funding is our Chamber's top legislative priority this year and this is a critical vote to make sure a bill passes this year. That is why we are asking for your help in calling Senators Chip Campsen, Larry Grooms, and Paul Thurmond today. We need their support to secure this legislation a special order slot that require two-thirds majority.
The South Carolina Senate will go into session tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. So it is important that your calls are made before 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
Senate Contact Information: Senator Chip Campsen:803-212-6340 or chipcampsen@scsenate.gov Senator Larry Grooms: 803-212-6400 or stranscom@scsenate.gov Senator Paul Thurmond: 803-212-6172 or paulthurmond@scsenate.gov

Talking Points:

  • Ask them to support H.3579 to receive a special order slot ensuring infrastructure funding will be debated this year.
  • We understand this isn't a perfect bill but your vote for special order allows for changes to be made by the full Senate on the floor.
  • It's extremely important to address infrastructure funding this year and the business community firmly supports addressing this need, because it puts future growth and economic development in jeopardy.
Thank you for your continued support and your help with this important opportunity to make sure this critical issue takes an important step forward tomorrow.
