and Charleston County Coroner Bobbi Jo O'Neal
attended the Senate Judiciary Committee
to support H. 3865 on coroner qualifications.

The Senate Finance Committee adopted its version of the budget bill (H. 5100) and Capital Reserve Fund (H. 5101) this week. Although several other committees also met, the Senate was in perfunctory session all week. The House spent Tuesday and Wednesday working through its calendar and passed a handful of bills in advance of Thursday’s crossover deadline.
