South Carolina General Assembly Set to Reconvene on May 12
South Carolina House Speaker Jay Lucas and Senate President Harvey Peeler announced the General Assembly will reconvene on May 12.
The leaders made the announcement in a joint letter.
The General Assembly is expected to pass bills allowing them to take up a number of matters in a special session.
Additionally, the General Assembly will work to extend the time to pass a budget.
This work was set to be completed when they reconvened on April 8.
However, a public disagreement over restrictions on Santee Cooper led to a failure to come to an agreement.
