The following report was prepared by the House GOP Caucus –
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 us 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
State Retirement System Reform
Session Shortening/Biennial Budgeting
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, we will send regular updates which keep you informed of our progress as we complete the work of the people. Our agenda is ambitious and we believe we have the determination necessary to be successful.
