Legislators said Monday that a tentative agreement could provide $800 million for road and bridge work across South Carolina without raising taxes.

A three-part infrastructure compromise approved by a panel of House and Senate members would provide up to $141 million in state taxes toward infrastructure in the fiscal year that starts July 1. The measure was crucial for a separate panel reaching agreement hours later on the overall budget plan for 2013-14.

that's cool. I wonder if they'll be able to keep the promise of no tax increase. But infrastructure spending is desperately needed in this country.

$800 million won't get you too much, so don't get your hopes up.

Compromise? Agreement? You can't possibly be talking about politicians in the U.S. !

@Bttlecat. Not true. In most states at least some of the taxes collected at the pump go to road and bridge repairs. Unfortunately in most states the money goes into the general fund to pay off the likes of union/employee pensions.

Somebody needs to be spending some cash on the roads and bridges. Many are in sorry shape.
