The most important issue facing South Carolina is the economy and how we grow jobs. We must work to raise income levels so that we can return to the national average. We accomplish that by creating a pro-business, pro-growth climate so that we can attract new high-growth, high-wage industries. We must also focus on giving existing companies the tools they need to grow and create jobs. In addition, we must promote entrepreneurship, support small businesses, and create programs to ensure our workers are well-prepared for the jobs created here.
