When the House reconvenes next week their plans are to debate the Senate roads bill (also known merely as the patch act). While my hope is that they will drastically improve the bill that the Senate sent over, I am not optimistic because again it appears that many members of the General Assembly are putting partisan politics over what's best for the people we serve. The Senate will now spend time on the Ethics bill, another bill that should be a priority. Hopefully we can pass a strong ethics bill and then next on the agenda will be the state budget which is always an important bill. It is my hope that we will revisit the roads bill and provide a distinct and dedicated source of revenue to adequately fix our roads and bridges, pass a strong ethics bill and pass a good budget that represents and reflects the priorities and the core functions of state government. Please remember to visit www.scsenate.gov to see the bills that I have sponsored and co-sponsored as well as to receive more information about the aforementioned bills. As always, please feel free to contact me at any time that I may be of service. Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
