Supreme Court Slaps State Ports Authority Like it Stole Somethin'
Some good news for the South Carolina economy ...
FITS has learned that the pseudo-socialist defenders of the status quo at the S.C. State Ports Authority (SPA) have suffered a crushing defeat in a highly-anticipated ruling released today by the South Carolina Supreme Court.
In today's groundbreaking ruling, the Court determined that Jasper County was not only within its legal rights to condemn property along the Savannah River for port construction, but also has "the power and authority to create a county-owned public marine terminal" there as well.
The "My-Way-Or-The-Highway" Marxist-Leninists at the SPA were insisting on their exclusive right to condemn and construct on both questions, part of a long-held "total state control" philosophy that has set South Carolina back decades on port expansion.
This was a long-awaited ruling that will have monumental economic reverberations for the entire State of South Carolina ... stay tuned to FITS throughout the afternoon for complete analysis.
