Great news for jobs in our state!  The Charleston Harbor Deepening Project is one step closer to construction.  Thanks to our South Carolina Congressional delegation for supporting Wednesday’s vote on the Water Resources Development Act, also known as WRDA.  This will not only ensure the Charleston Harbor project moves forward creating jobs, but it also updates our nation’s water infrastructure system which is vitally important for public health and emergency response.  To read more on the WRDA and hear what S.C. Chamber President Ted Pitts had to say click here.
