COLUMBIA, SC — Senator Tim Scott voted against a bipartisan bill that will make a crucial investment in our state’s infrastructure, grow the economy, and create a generation of good-paying jobs. With highways in poor condition, commute times that have increased by 7.4%, and 7.87% of South Carolinians living in areas with no broadband infrastructure, this bill will truly change lives.
Here is what Tim Scott voted against:
- Repairing and rebuilding roads and bridges
- Improving healthy, sustainable transportation options for millions of Americans
- Building a network of EV chargers to facilitate long-distance travel and provide convenient charging options
- Connecting every South Carolinian to reliable high-speed internet
“Today Tim Scott told the people of South Carolina that our C- infrastructure grade is good enough. Over 7,292 miles of highway and 1,702 bridges are in poor condition across the state. South Carolinians deserve a senator who is willing to work across the aisle to get legislation passed for the good of our state,” said SCDP Chair Trav Robertson, Jr. “Instead of fighting for our state, he is too busy laying the groundwork for his 2024 presidential campaign and courting mega-donors. If Tim Scott can’t vote for a bipartisan bill that will improve the lives of all of his constituents, then what CAN he vote for?”
