A quick Thursday up here at the Statehouse with the Senate in just for over two hours today, but not taking up many items of consequence besides a few confirmations for several state boards as well as State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel’s confirmation to another term.
Charleston Democratic Sen. Marlon Kimpson took a minute to chastise Gov. Henry McMaster over McMaster’s comments from yesterday on the National Walkout Day movement. He also helped make the case for Sen. Sandy Senn’s violence against schools’ bill, which would make it a crime to threaten violence in schools, something that could’ve applied to mass murderer Dylann Roof’s sister—who was arrested after making a vague threat and had a weapon on her at AC Flora High School on Wednesday.
S.C. Dept. of Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt’s perspective on the proposed Trump administration tariffs. We also have a comment from the governor about making sure those tariffs don’t hurt the state.

Guns were a main topic of the day, as thousands of students across the state and country walked out of their classes to protest gun violence during National Walkout Day, Gov. Henry McMaster weighed in calling it a left-wing operation to exploit students.
Other legislative activity included:
- A bill expanding gun background checks to five days and expediting court reporting of convictions to gun background databases moved to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
- Sen. Greg Gregory, R-Lancaster, introduced a bill that outlaws bump stocks, high capacity magazines and raises the age for purchasing a rifle to 21.
- Sen. Katrina Shealy, R-Lexington, talked about her child advocacy agency bill.
- The governor signed the automatic stay bill into law.
- And Senate lawmakers approved a House measure dealing with how the governor and lieutenant governor run on a joint ticket this year.
Headed to the McMaster's desk for his signature.

A busy day in Columbia with the House on its second day of floor debate on the $8.2 billion budget, which featured tense exchanges over proposed amendments. The Senate Judiciary Committee sent a bill to the Senate floor that makes it a crime to threaten violence at a school with a weapon. A Senate Judiciary subcommittee sent H.4379, a bill creating a consumer advocate for utility ratepayers in the Attorney General's office, to the full committee and the Senate approved a bill creating a child's advocate position.
This week's SC Lede is out, keep up to date with all things political.
Big week at the State House. Follow @GavinJackson for updates.

Hello and welcome to the March 8 edition of This Week In South Carolina: In Session
As always we bring you a video recap of what happened at the Statehouse today, giving you more context from those at the center of legislative activity in Columbia.
On this last day of the ninth legislative week, we saw bills zoom through the House in preparation for next week. That’s when the House will be deliberating the $8.2 billion budget, beginning Monday.
The House passed bills today to:
-Give local municipalities more power to remove abandoned boats left on state waterways.
-Crack down on spoof phone calls.
-And make access to birth control cheaper and easier.
The governor held a press conference after a bill, which would require cities in South Carolina prove they're not a sanctuary city, advanced out of a House subcommittee today
We were so excited to learn all about Greenville Community Theater’s Penguin Project Production of Annie Jr. We had the opportunity to speak with one of the artists, Tim, his mother, Carol, Production Coordinator, Ansley Keenan, and Greenville Community Theater Executive Director Stephen Gilbert. #DontStopBelieving
Stay tunes for air date!

Welcome to the March 7 edition of This Week in South Carolina: In Session—Hump Day edition.
It should really be a throwback Thursday, because the House was once again chiding the Senate for being inactive. The House wants the Senate to start taking up V.C. Summer-related bills that the House sent them weeks ago. They passed another today that would lower your SCE&G power bill by roughly 19 percent—that’s the amount that goes to the defunct nuclear reactor project.
We also have Senate Judiciary Chairman Luke Rankin’s thoughts on this exact bill since he’s over a Senate subcommittee that is dealing with the nuclear bills.
And the plastic bag ban bill, H. 3529, that made it through the House earlier this year floated up in a Senate subcommittee hearing today. Dozens of people crowded the room, mostly opponents of the bill.
And a bill making the electric chair the default method of execution in the state was sent to the House from the Senate today.
