South Carolina state government is bracing for another winter storm this week.

The state Senate called off this week's session, Senate President Pro Tempore John Courson said.

The decision was made after Courson spoke with other senate leaders at noon.

The S.C. House of Representatives is on furlough this week, though three budget meetings are planned.

The General Assembly did not meet in the snow storm two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Gov. Nikki Haley will speak with S.C. emergency management officials this afternoon to get information on whether to declare a state of emergency, her office said.
