The Complete Streets Bill Gets a Hearing!
The Complete Streets Bill (H.3656)  will get a hearing next 
Tuesday, March 26   1 hour after House adjournment (about 1:00 pm)  in the House Educati on & Pub lic Works, Transportation subcommittee.

This bill is a separate policy from the SCLCA's policy proposal  directly to the SC Department of Transportation.   If passed, it will compliment our efforts to make state-owned streets in South Carolina safer!

If you are interested in attending or testifying in support, which will both be helpful, reply to this email, and we will provide talking points!

Join us for a community conversation on making SC streets safer for everyone at  Reid Chapel AME  in Columbia, SC.  Our discussion will be led by our equity consultant, Tiffany James, and the SC Chapter of the  National Action Network .   Click here to learn more!
