Earlier this year, Palmetto Promise Institute published our Palmetto Freedom Agenda, 23 policies to make South Carolina an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.

Today I am pleased to deliver to you a “beta” edition of Fiscal Facts 2023: Data to Support the Palmetto Promise Freedom Agenda.

This publication is chock-full of figures and statistics on South Carolina’s economy, taxes & spending, debt & liabilities, education, healthcare, and energy.

In Fiscal Facts 2023, we have chosen to present 37 tables of data—without commentary. We trust the numbers speak for themselves. We think the simple facts support our Freedom Agenda.

As a Certified Public Accountant, numbers and statistics are incredibly important to me. I hope data and facts and truth are important to you, too.

Fiscal Facts is one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by Palmetto Promise. Please let me know what you think of it.
