S.C. state senators could pass a proposal to repair the state’s crumbling roads next week.
Senators left Columbia for the week Thursday after three days of debate of a plan to raise the state’s gas tax to fix the state’s crumbling roads.
Senate President Pro Tempore Hugh Leatherman, R-Florence, said Thursday the Senate “absolutely must deal with the roads bill this coming week.”
Never miss a local story.
Leatherman warned senators to return to Columbia Tuesday prepared to work nights and possibly into the weekend.
“The people out there are telling me: ‘The Senate needs to do something,’ ” Leatherman said. “I hope the Senate will rise to the occasion.”
