The Senate will likely vote to override Governor Nikki Haley’s veto of a resolution blocking dredging of the Savannah River Thursday. Meanwhile, the House has a slew of contested bills on its calendar, although leaders have not said what action they plan to take Thursday.
SENATE: (All meetings in Gressette building, unless noted otherwise)
9:00 a.m. (Room 105) — A judiciary subcommittee will continue discussion on a bill by Rep. Mike Pitts (R-Laurens) that would try to encourage parents involved in separation hearings to come up with a joint custody solution, if practicable. The bill passed the House last month.
9:00 a.m. (R00m 207) — The Corrections and Penology Committee will consider several bills, including one by Sen. Ralph Anderson (D-Greenville) that would allow a wrongfully-imprisoned person to recover the monetary value of their lost time in prison.
9:30 a.m. (Room 209) — A finance subcommittee will hear budget requests from the Department of Education, Education Oversight Commission, the SC Public Charter School District, First Steps, and the Governor’s Schools.
