Today at the SC State House: it’s budget season

If the list seems shorter this week than earlier in the S.C. Legislature’s term, there’s an easy answer: it’s budget season.

Members of the House of Representatives are dedicating the bulk of their time this week to debating the state’s nearly $8 billion general fund budget.

That limits members’ extracurriculars. Only side meetings of the majority and minority caucuses are on the House calendar this week.

Besides the House budget talk, the Senate’s finance committee is also taking up a string of spending measures today.
