One of the students praised Senator Courson for being called a “taxpayer hero” and wanted to know what qualifies him as a real fiscal conservative. The Republican of Richland County said he has always made fiscal restraint a large part of his time in office. Senator Courson said that the most interesting question he was asked was, “with the cost of college soaring, the tough economic climate making it harder for many to pay, should colleges offer three-year degrees?” He said that is a possible solution that our state hasn’t considered yet.
We’re fortunate to have committed elected officials like Senator Courson.
