Tim Scott has served the people of South Carolina as U.S. Senator since 2013. Senator Scott was raised in North Charleston, South Carolina by a single mother. His grandfather dropped out of third grade to pick cotton. Senator Scott notes with pride that his grandfather lived long enough to go from picking cotton to seeing his grandson in Congress. Senator Scott’s signature legislation, Opportunity Zones, was enacted into law as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. As a result, $75 billion of private investments have been made in distressed communities across the country.
