Making South Carolina more
bike and walk friendly, since 1995.
April 2020 Newsletter
Biking & Walking are now more important
than ever.
During this community crisis, biking & walking are providing community connection, mental relief, physical fitness, and transit utility . They can be your path to resilience, individually and with your community.

So go for a ride or a walk . It's catching on! Rates are doubling & tripling in some places. See more here, from ECGA.

And read our blogpost for ideas on what you can do now.

PCC continues to work for better biking & walking statewide, but we need your help . Donations and fundraising events have already taken hits for 2020, due to coronavirus, and yet the need for programming remains.

Please help us secure new donations , during this year's Day of Giving: May 5th. You can also schedule a donation prior.

PCC Legislative Update: S.723 and S.906
All 2020 legislative actions are at a standstill. We feel the pain of this intensely, because the Hands Free (S.723) and 3 Feet bills still had legs, prior to Coronavirus. They have lost their legs for 2020, so now we prepare for 2021.

The Governor is expected to make revisions to his Executive Order in mid-May. If the General Assembly does not adopt a Sine Die resolution by May 14th, they will be unable to consider any legislative matters until next January, other than those things the Governor potentially stipulates in an emergency session. A Sine Die Resolution allows them to take up certain types of legislation after they hit the statutory adjournment date of May 7th. Such legislation might include the Budget, Resolutions, bills on the calendar that have beat the crossover deadline (ours have not), bills that are needed to extend sunset requirements, and bills needed to deal with the Coronavirus.

In 2021, we anticipate big opportunities to develop a comprehensive road safety agenda with broad partners.

To do so, we need your support. Please donate today, or schedule a donation for Midlands Gives: May 5th.
Thank you.
