Family… It’s part of what makes the Lowcountry such a special place. State Senator Larry Grooms grew up here and he and his wife, Carol, raised three sons here.  Larry is a devoted family man with a proven record of success.  Working to make the Lowcountry an even better place to live, work and raise a family is what Senator Grooms does best.

As our population grows, it is more important now than ever that we fight for what makes the Lowcountry so special. Senator Grooms is dedicated to protecting our history, culture, and environment to ensure we grow sustainably and responsibly. Under his leadership, future generations to come will be proud to call the Lowcountry home, just as we do today. 

The Lowcountry… This is our home, a special place where we live, work and raise our families.  State Senator Larry Grooms has an unmatched record of fighting for our families, protecting our scenic spaces and natural resources, bringing in new jobs, creating greater opportunities, and keeping our families safe. Because this is our home!

A job should be more than just a paycheck. State Senator Larry Grooms is a Lowcountry small business leader who knows that new jobs bring greater opportunities, while building a sense of security, a higher quality of life, and a brighter tomorrow.

My common sense infrastructure reform package brought meaningful structural changes to the state DOT while providing additional revenue to fix our roads. The recently-passed plan shifts authority away from the Legislature by empowering the Governor to appoint all members of the SCDOT Commission, ensuring greater accountability. The Infrastructure Maintenance Trust Fund protects funding for roads and bridges while providing taxpayers with a refundable income tax credit in exchange for a moderate increase in motor fuel user fees. But our work is not finished. This year I was also appointed to a special panel tasked with seeking ways to improve our busy interstates.

I will continue to stand with our teachers and with the hard-working taxpayers of our great state. After 20 years of fighting for creating additional choices for our public schools, we have more choice but we are still not where we need to be. South Carolina teachers deserve more than 4%. I support cutting unnecessary spending so we can use existing funding to increase teacher pay.

We all agree that we should protect children after they’re born — and I thank God that there are people willing to stand up for the rights of those who aren’t yet born. As your Senator, I will be the voice for those who cannot yet speak for themselves, because ALL life is sacred. I am the primary sponsor of a companion bill to the SC Fetal Heartbeat Protection Act. We have a duty to protect unborn little girls and little boys in our state and across the country.
