SCDP LAUDS BIDEN -HARRIS ADMINISTRATION HISTORIC PUBLIC INVESTMENT TO REBUILD AND RE-ENERGIZE SOUTH CAROLINA’S ECONOMY

 

Columbia, S.C.— South Carolinians will benefit from President Biden’s American Jobs Plan, which calls for modernizing over 20,000 miles of highways, roads, and local streets.

 

When it comes to the economy, the Palmetto State can also anticipate the creation of good paying jobs building, rehabilitating, and retrofitting affordable, accessible, energy efficient, and resilient housing, commercial buildings, schools, and child care facilities. While also improving South Carolina’s federal facilities, specifically those serving veterans.

 

The plan will unify and mobilize the country to meet the great challenges of our time, including the climate crisis, by investing in Americans to deliver the jobs and opportunities they deserve. Unlike past major investments, this plan prioritizes addressing long-standing and persistent racial injustice by focusing the benefits of climate and clean infrastructure investments toward disadvantaged communities.

 

“The American Jobs Plan is an investment in America that will create millions of good jobs, rebuild our country’s infrastructure, and position the United States to out-compete China.” says Executive Director, Jay Parmley. “ What we know is public domestic investment as a share of the economy has fallen more than 40 percent since the 1960s. The Biden-Harris American Jobs Plan will invest in America in a way we have not seen since the days of interstate highway construction and the Space Race.”
