Because bringing every single one of you to the State House would make for a parking catastrophe and a fire hazard in the chambers, we’re trying to bring the State House to you in a new blog series: #InsideBuzz.

This week’s #InsideBuzz:

Yellow Bee

 

"After much prayer and discussion with my family, friends and constituents, I am announcing my candidacy for the SC Senate District 4 vacancy left by the death of Senator O’Dell." -- Rep. Mike Gambrell announcement of his candidacy on Facebook page.

 

 

 

 Yellow BeeNewly introduced bills:

  • Even though it's already illegal and there is no evidence of it happening in SC, Sen. Vincent Sheheen introduces a bill to outlaw selling of fetal tissue.
  • A bill was recently introduced which would make "disseminating obscene material to a student" a felony. 
  • This bill has it all: fetal death certificates, certificates of birth resulting in stillbirths, and the prohibition of selling fetal tissue.

 

Green Bee

 

 

"I've never had an abortion." --Rep Walt McLeod during an ad hoc committee on why he doesn't presume to speak for women.
