The S.C. Senate will hold its organizational session Dec. 6.
During the noon session, senators will select their committees, elect officers, adopt rules and pick their seats in the Senate chamber.
“We will have several new members and we voted last year to shorten the session by one month. I see this organizational session as a way for us to hit the ground running more effectively and efficiently at the start of the upcoming year,” said Senate President Pro Tempore Hugh Leatherman, R-Florence. “With the changes that have occurred, I want to reiterate my commitment to using our time wisely and having the most productive and effective legislative session possible.”
The Buzz is waiting patiently to see if senators change their rules that enable bill- and time-killing filibusters.
