Mar. 21, 2017 Podcast: Paton Blough: an Independent Path to Represent Us, Sen. Timmons: a Reasoned and Reasonable Plan For Our Road and President Trump: a Blueprint For Spending Our Money.
Today’s show began with the announcement of friend of the show and mental health advocate, Paton Blough of rehinge.com.
Paton is looking to create an independent path to represent us for the 4th Congressional District House of Representatives. Greenville News covered the event as well.
We then checked out freshman state senator, William Timmon’s well reasoned and reasonable plan for fixing our roads here in SC. In this Greenville Journal article, Sen. Timmon lays out a 3 step plan that just might work. Check out his plan here and encourage your senators to support it.
Finally, we took some time to examine President Trump’s Budget that he sent to Congress last week.
You can check the full text of his budget here, thanks to NPR.
We started today’s show with a breakdown of Sen. Lindsey Graham’s town hall.
We appreciate Sen. Graham providing us an opportunity to express our views to him, even if many of those view disagree with him.
And legislation authorizing SC to comply with The Real ID Act passed and signed into U.S. law in 2005.
There are two major bills making their way through the SC House addressing our roads issues:
SC H 3516, that mainly addresses increasing funding and
SC H 3703, that mainly addresses real reform for the Dept. of Transportation (We like this one)
