Labor Day Message and Update

Labor Day Message and Update

Dear Friends and Neigbors,

On August 27, Speaker Harrell reconvened the House of Representatives to address two of the Governor’s vetoes, which the Senate considered and voted to override after the House adjourned on June 17.  The pending issues dealt with (1) the removal of persons from public libraries and (2) the addition of millage for the Murrell’s Inlet/Garden City Fire District.  The latter was sustained.

The House overwhelmingly overrode the Governor’s veto dealing with the library trespass.  I was proud to support our libraries in successfully …

May Legislative Update

May Legislative Update

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

Here is my Legislative Update for May.  This month, the House overwhelmingly passed an Ethics Bill 110-0, and I was proud to be a co-sponsor of an amendment removing legislators from serving on the Commission.   A major solar bill also passed 105-0.  I was glad to be a part of a bi-partisan effort  in passing a bill providing for the State Election Commission oversight of County Boards of Voter Registration and Election, the biggest election reform measure passed in the last decade!
