STATE HOUSE: Bill prefiling starts Tuesday

Let the legislation begin.

S.C. House members can prefile bills on Tuesday ahead of the next session of the General Assembly that starts Jan. 14.

Representatives also can submit their proposed laws on Dec. 10 -- the same day S.C. state senators can first prefile their bills.

The senate can send in legislation on Dec 17 as well.

Expect lawmakers to submit a lot of bills to solidify their political positions ahead of a big election year.
