State House Report #1

Challenges and Conservative Solutions
The South Carolina General Assembly convened this week for the first time in 2016, marking the beginning of the second half of the biennial legislative session.

The Republican Caucus remains focused on tackling the big issues you have told me matter a great deal to you. Our robust agenda tackles everything from roads and education, to protecting the Second Amendment. Below is a list of our conservative agenda for 2016:

Restructuring the Department of Transportation
School Choice Tax Credit

Individual Income Tax Reform

Protecting Life: Anti-Dismemberment

Judicial Reform

State Retirement System Reform

Session Shortening/Biennial Budgeting

Ethics Reform

Secure and Protect South Carolina’s Dams

Protecting the 2nd Amendment: Castle Doctrine Reinforcement

Eminent Domain Reform

Environmental Regulation Reform
   
In addition to these big ideas, hundreds of other bills have already been filed in the House requiring our committees to begin the task of hearings with testimony and deliberations that will result in bills being sent to the House floor for debate and votes. The business of the people of South Carolina is under way!


In the coming weeks, I will send regular updates which keep you informed of our progress as we complete the work of the people. Our agenda is ambitious and I believe we have the determination necessary to be successful.

As always, it is a privilege to serve you in the South Carolina House.  If you ever need help with state government, or have any thoughts or concerns about what we are doing, please to not hesitate to contact me.
