2022 Statehouse Report # 9
Critical Race Theory:
The Education Committee once again met to review several bills (325, 4343, 4392, 4605, and 4799) that go to address the issue of Critical Race Theory. They took hours of testimony on Tuesday, resulting in a very long committee meeting. The work is long, but I feel confident that the committee is one step closer to finalizing legislation that addresses this issue and sending it to the Floor.
● Passed - H. 3509: The House passed a bill that extends the Department of Social Services protections for children in foster care to the age of 21 to make the transition into adulthood more supported and smooth.
● Passed - H. 4601: I voted in favor of a bill that deems ambulance services an essential service in South Carolina. This ensures that when emergency strikes, each county is prepared to provide services necessary to possibly save a life. It unanimously passed the House and is on to the Senate.
