CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - State senator from Charleston Marlon Kimpson is expected to file a bill Tuesday aimed at making housing across the state more affordable.
Kimpson says the the average price for a house is $235,000.
At the peak of the 2007 housing market, the average cost of a home was closer to $210,000.
Kimpson's plan calls for home builders to bear the cost.
He proposes an increase to building fees to fund affordable housing programs.
