Status: In committee
Our Position: Oppose
125th South Carolina General Assembly convened on January 10, 2023 to begin the first year of its two-year legislative session and lawmakers have filed nearly 1,000 bills for consideration. We've reviewed every bill and set our priorities—what we support and what we oppose. There’s no way that we could prioritize every important proposal that will be debated at the Statehouse; that’s why we work with partner organizations that take the lead on many critical fights.
You can read more about each priority bill below—what the bills do, their current status, and where we stand on each one. We will all have to work together to protect and expand our civil liberties during this legislative session, and there is certainly a lot of work to be done. If you're overwhelmed at the thought of staying informed and engaged on all these issues, you're not alone. We can help—join our email list or follow us on social media for updates and action alerts.
