Tuesday, Ja. 14, began the 2nd regular session of the 120th General Assembly.
One of the first orders of business was the introduction of pre-filed bills.
A pre-filed bill can be submitted during a two day period in December, and then is introduced on the first day.
This year, there were 101 pieces of legislation pre-filed in the Senate, and 82 in the House of Representatives.
Any bills introduced last year that were not passed automatically carry forward into this session.
I continue to serve on the following Senate Committees: Finance, where I also serve on the Executive Committee and as Chairman of the Natural Resources and Economic Development Subcommittee; Agriculture; Ethics; Fish, Game and Forestry; General; Invitations; and Transportation.
We had very informative briefings this week from both the conservationists and the S. C. State Ports Authority.
Please feel free to contact me on any issue.
