Whereas, the South Carolina General Assembly supports the efforts of the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, the Latta Revitalization Commission, and the City of Mullins in creating the South Carolina Tobacco Trail; and
Whereas, the purpose of the trail is to preserve and conserve the region's rich agricultural history, and the trail will tell the story, past, present, and future, of the agricultural history of our state's tobacco-growing region; and
Whereas, the farmers and communities of the Pee Dee are endeavoring to help their own economic needs; and
Whereas, the trail will further positive economic growth for these farming communities as well as the tourism industry; and
Whereas, agri-tourism is one of the fastest growing areas in all tourism in South Carolina; and
