South Carolina is the last to go into a recession and the last to go out. That was what S.C. Chamber of Commerce President Otis Rawl Jr. told those attending a recent legislative breakfast at the Bradley Arts & Sciences building at the University of South Carolina of Lancaster.
Rep. Jimmy Neal, Senator-elect Mick Mulvaney and U.S. Congressman John Spratt echoed Rawl’s sentiments.
The legislators shared similar concerns about the economy and what needed to be done to recover from what has been billed the worst recession since World War II.
