Vote no on the 2024 transportation sales tax


This November, Horry County residents will be asked to vote on a 25-year transportation sales tax that would raise $6.35 billion, with the bulk of funds going towards new, unnecessary and destructive roads instead of improving existing roads and bridges in need of repair. 

These new highway projects—I-73 and the SC Highway 22 Extension (formerly called SELL)—will devastate wetlands and rivers, public lands, and local communities struggling to overcome flooding. 

The negative effects from these highways would be permanent and far-reaching: destroying hundreds of acres of protected wetlands in the Little Pee Dee Heritage Preserve and Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge, cutting through farmland in Dillon, Marion and Horry Counties and exacerbating flooding issues in the Bucksport and Burgess communities.
