I have been trying for weeks to obtain accurate information concerning our commitment to Volvo from all the different funding sources.

As a member of the S.C. General Assembly and a longtime resident of Berkeley County, I should be able to obtain this information.

Berkeley County is proposing a tax increase; therefore, I feel our state and our county commitments to Volvo are equally relevant.

I support the project, but not to the detriment of the financial solvency of our state and its well respected AAA credit rating. The citizens of Berkeley County must be protected.
