(Columbia, SC) – Today, the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance released the following state regarding the signing into law of S. 105. This bill implements a new 90-day deadline on environmental challenges to projects, and provides predictability as the state continues to grow its infrastructure and business capabilities in order to meet the demands of the Palmetto State's population growth.
“On behalf of South Carolina’s manufacturing community, we applaud the legislature and Governor Henry McMaster for the passage of S.105,” said Sara Hazzard, President and CEO of the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance. “The Automatic Stay bill provides a fair and equitable balance for businesses and private citizens. In the past, the previous law was used by some to stymie economic growth through costly, lengthy, and unnecessary delays. The passage of this legislation ensures that in environmental permitting cases our judicial system can strike an appropriate balance to protect our natural heritage while also protecting our jobs.”
