Today at the State House: Wrapping things up

Today is the last day in Columbia for South Carolina’s lawmakers, at least for a while.

The S.C. Legislature will adjourn for the year on Thursday, with several items still on the agenda – including a revised Freedom of Information bill, a contentious bill defining anti-Semitism, and new regulations for mopeds.

If legislators adjourn without taking action on your preferred piece of legislation, though, don’t worry. All bills left over from this year’s session will still be considered pending when the General Assembly reconvenes in January.

Lawmakers will even return to Columbia later this month to finish work on any items left up in the air, like last-minute vetoes by the governor.
