Senate Special Session Cancelled
The special session of the South Carolina Senate scheduled for October 12 has been cancelled.
In a letter to senators, Senate President Harvey Peeler stated the session would be unnecessary citing delays in redistricting plans and House leaders’ refusal to reconvene on COVID-19 funding issues.
While the redistricting issue will still need to be addressed in a special session later this year, the COVID-19 funding issues, without the House’s willingness to reconvene on the issue, will have to wait until the 2022 session.
