State lawmakers will return for a special one-day session October 27th to fix a problem that’s keeping unemployed South Carolinians from receiving more federal assistance. But Representative Greg Delleney says today he’ll use that opportunity to introduce a resolution for impeachment.
Delleney says that would only serve as the beginning of the process since his resolution will likely be sent to committee.
“I just filed the resolution to get the process started,” said Delleney. “I expect the resolution to be accepted and referred to the Judiciary Committee. Then the Chairman may refer it to the Constitutional Laws Subcommittee, a subcommittee I chair. Then we can take this matter up in January and have all the heavy lifting done.”
Following his unemployment roundtable meeting Tuesday, Governor Sanford had this to say: “People are going to do what they’re going to do. What we’re focused on is right here today–how do we do a better job at connecting workplace opportunities with workers who need jobs? If we have more conversation on that we can focus on what really matters to many families, which is having a job by Christmas time.”
