On Tuesday, legislators return to the State House from a week off. They’ll have 12 legislative days to work on priority bills before the end of the legislative year, meaning there will be a flurry of activity for the next 3-4 weeks. We’ll keep you informed of all the happenings and opportunities to take action.

Highlights from last week:

Although the House and Senate were both on furlough, there were some notable developments last week:

  • Governor McMaster issued a statement in support of S.105, the Automatic Stay bill. While we are disappointed in his support of a bad bill, we are not deterred from the fight. You can read his statement and our response here.
  • SCE&G made a presentation to the Public Service Commission about the future of the V.C. Summer nuclear reactors in light of the bankruptcy announcement from its contractor, Westinghouse, who has been building the reactors. In short, the future of the project remains uncertain. Regardless of the outcome of the project, these developments highlight the need for continued dialogue on the future of energy in South Carolina. Read more by The State here. Stay tuned for more on this later.
