Friday Report - February 9, 2024


Representatives from the S.C. Association of Auditors, Treasurers & Tax Collectors, including SCAC Board Member and Anderson County Treasurer Jason Phillips, visited the State House this week.

After voting to set S. 423, the “Compassionate Care Act” bill for special order, the Senate began debate on the bill Wednesday. Debate is expected to continue next week on the floor, and multiple amendments are likely to be offered and considered. 

A Senate Judiciary subcommittee met Tuesday and discussed several bills aimed at changing the process of nominating and selecting judicial candidates, although no bills were advanced.

The House spent most of the week on the floor working through its calendar to prepare for the consideration of the state budget bill by the Ways and Means Committee in the coming weeks. Several bills of interest to counties are discussed below.
