SC Legislative Update

By Ben Homeyer


The South Carolina General Assembly will begin work next week on Jan 10 th at noon. This is the first year of our two year session. Also, next week the Governor and all Constitutional officers will be sworn in.

The House and Senate saw the most amount of pre-file bills ever put forth before session has begun. We are currently monitoring approximately twenty bills at this time but fully expect that number to grow.

Regulations related to the mining act are also being discussed further. Association members will be
meeting with DHEC and other stakeholders in the coming weeks to further talk about the subject and
protect the association interests.
