I-95 Agency Meets Its Fate?

What should be done about poverty along the I-95 Corridor? Last year a handful of state lawmakers had a bright idea: What the “Corridor of Shame” really needs is another state agency. They passed a bill creating the I-95 Corridor Authority, but the governor vetoed it – leaving the Authority in limbo.

SCPC gave our members a description of exactly what this agency would be empowered to do, and how it would be funded. Now, as The Nerve reported on Monday, some of the same lawmakers who voted to pass the bill have changed their minds.

The bill will likely meet its fate this week. Keep up to date with what happens – on this and everything else going on at the State House – at our Facebook page.
