SC State Rep. proposes to allow casinos in Myrtle Beach to fund road repairs

 A proposal to allow well-regulated, upscale casinos in the Myrtle Beach area and use the tax revenue to fix poor roads and bridges across the state of South Carolina has been suggested.

House Minority Leader Representative J. Todd Rutherford (D-Columbia) announced Wednesday in a press release his plans to introduce the idea to legislation in 2015.

But, local Rep Alan Clemmons (R – Horry County) is having none of it due to the common arguments of Myrtle Beach being a family beach, and of us becoming Atlantic City.
