Commission approves amendment explanations
A group has agreed to the explanations voters will see to the two proposed amendments to South Carolina’s Constitution.
The Constitutional Ballot Commission met last week in the state Attorney General’s Office.
They approved language that explains an amendment that if passed would allow some charitable nonprofit groups to run raffles. A second amendment would change the state Constitution to change the adjutant general from being elected by voters to being appointed by the governor.
The amendments will be on the ballot in November.
