Policy Innovation

Why public policy? Because we believe in the limitless promise of South Carolina and her people, as we fulfill our promise to promote a policy vision that returns dollars and decisions to individuals and communities…and inspires people to work together for our shared future.  That’s a promise we intend to keep.

Our vision begins with four foundational drivers of our state’s future success: education, energy, healthcare and taxes. Each area represents untapped potential to afford every South Carolinian the opportunity to flourish. With your help, bold ideas and strategic, long-term thinking will carry the day. We hope you’ll join us in this journey to unlock our Palmetto State’s incredible promise!
