McLendon: SC sex-ed opponents weakening armed services, and would-be soldiers

Sen. Mike Fair, acting on behalf of Sens. Larry Grooms and Lee Bright, took a step last week that will weaken our military if it isn’t reversed. He placed a minority report on H.3435, the amendment to South Carolina’s Comprehensive Health Education Act. H.3435 would require school districts to implement the existing law and to use medically accurate health information. The Senate Education Committee approved it 9-2, but Sen. Fair’s minority report hurls the bill to the bottom of the agenda for this year’s legislative session. We must all ask these three senators to immediately end their blocking strategy, so the Senate can vote on H.3435 before Thursday.
