Question | How will you handle the budget crisis in 2011-2012, where there is expected to be a $1.2 billion shortfall?

Answer | I propose a toll road on I-95 with exemptions for SC residents. I-95 travelers use our roads daily by the thousands. Other states use toll revenues to fund state budgets; let's do the same to help our state.
