The Supreme Court closed the case on the governor making lawmakers come back to work this week. She has not given up on the bill getting back to the Senate, however.
Senate President Pro Tempore Glenn McConnell, in a press release, said he would support taking up the bill that Haley adamantly wants passed. However, his message also admonishes:
As one Senator, I will support efforts to move restructuring forward by including them in the Sine Die Resolution. I hope that the Governor’s attempted unconstitutional actions to this point do not hurt efforts to give the executive more power.
The governor, in her own press release, challenged the senator:
We expect him to be true to his word, and that as Senate President Pro Tempore he will ensure the Senate take up – and pass – these critical government reforms first thing next Tuesday. The people of this state have demanded this, and the Senate needs to deliver.
When the Senate returns, it is also tasked with debating redistricting and any budget issues to be worked out with the House.
