With S.890 stalled in the House, seawall proponents used H.4603, a joint resolution by Rep. Sottile allowing sandbagging for golf course protection, as a vehicle for language to allow DHEC to issue permits for the replacement of the Debordieu seawall.

The conservation community opposed H.4603 because other shoreline management protections were not included, but the bill cleared the Senate with most Senators thinking they were voting for the same compromise that had been crafted earlier on S.890. We thank both Senators Kimpson and Hutto for voting no. Reaching the House floor, Rep. Brannon made a motion to recommit this bill to the Committee on Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Environmental Affairs. Rep. Hardwick’s tabling motion failed with a vote of only 42-64. The bill was recommitted, a win for the environment.
