Mark Sanford on Environment

Republican SC Governor; previously Representative (SC-1)

Market-based incentive for private land conservation

We’ve proposed funding to bolster water quality efforts & expedite hazardous site cleanup, and we successfully pushed for full funding of the South Carolina Conservation Bank, providing a market-based incentive for private land conservation. In addition, Governor Sanford has proposed $10 million for a Timber Conservation Fund in this year’s Executive Budget to take advantage of a once in a lifetime chance to create a legacy of land conservation and conserve our forests for future generations. South Carolina was recently able to save 39,000 such acres of wildlife habitat, including over 38 miles of river frontage on the Big PeeDee and Little PeeDee Rivers, the largest land protection deal of its kind in South Carolina history. Finally, Governor Sanford recently petitioned the US Department of Agriculture to keep more than 7,600 acres of national forestland in South Carolina roadless, part of the administration’s ongoing effort to protect ecologically significant land in the state.
