The state House and Senate will not meet this week because of anticipated snowy weather .

"We're really doing it not just for the protection of other members who have to drive 150 miles, but the series of committee meetings, the people coming to the General Assembly to meet with their legislators on a variety of issues, it puts them at risk," Senate President Pro Tempore John Courson, R-Richland, said.

The Senate was scheduled to debate ethics reform, something it can easily pick up next week. But the House is in the middle of drafting the 2014-15 budget, which they hope to have passed by the end of March.
