Some big legislation made its way into Full Committee last week! Will still be tracking the important bill regarding the increase in penalties for trafficking fentanyl and the bill working on bond reform as we head into session this week. Stay tuned!

The SC House Republican Caucus is proud to support The Human Life Protection Act that passed out of the House Judiciary Constitutional Laws Subcommittee this week and will go before the full Judiciary Committee next week.
