Gov. McMaster has scheduled a series of roundtable style meetings with local business leaders across main street South Carolina to solicit and compile examples of regulations and red tape that make it unnecessarily difficult to do business in the Palmetto State.
The series of meetings builds on the governor’s Executive Order 2017-09, which orders a transparent review of cabinet agency regulations that may harm business growth, by including the perspective of local main street business leaders from across the State.
“Future economic prosperity requires that we keep South Carolina globally competitive. Periodically, that means identifying regulations and red tape that hinder any business owners’ ability to invest, expand, hire and profit,” said Gov. McMaster. “We need our local business leaders to provide examples of how the government is getting in their way, so we can provide them to the General Assembly.”
Each meeting will be co-hosted by a local Chamber of Commerce organization and roundtable participation limited to their local chamber membership.
Specific times and locations will be announced later, but scheduled dates include:
June 5: Anderson
June 7: Florence
June 8: Sumter
June 15: Rock Hill
June 21: Beaufort
June 22: Myrtle Beach
June 23: Aiken
