The Conservation Bank

Filed under: Economy, Environment, Ethics, Haley, South Carolina — NotforHire @ 8:05 am

There is no doubt that the Land Bank should be fully funded. It should be considered a central key to South Carolina’s future, both environmentally and economically.

As our state’s population continues to expand over the next decades, it is absolutely critical that as much open space be preserved as possible. Not only should the Conservation Bank be given its full $12 million in funding, the fund amount should be tripled from its current level.

The longer we wait to preserve these lands, the less of them there will be to preserve, and it will also become much more expensive to do so the future. Now is the time to be moving forcefully ahead with our state’s Conservation Bank.
