Your Voice In Columbia

State Representative Rita Allison keeps her constituents up-to-date on legislative matters.

Remaining committed to ethics

The House adjourned this past Wednesday due to inclement weather, shaving a legislative day from the calendar. But it was not before we moved on education reform, advanced an omnibus ethics reform bill and received an update on the state of South Carolina’s judicial system.

Ethics bills win approval

It would be easy to describe this past week as a “sprint in the midst of a legislative marathon.” We made significant strides in moving forward more ethics legislation, increasing transparency in government, ensuring our state is adequately prepared to deal with natural disasters and adding significant protections for the unborn.

New session to get underway

Happy New Year to each of you and your families.

I wish a year filled with joy, good health and peace for our citizens and our state. Tuesday, Jan. 13, the legislative session will be gaveled in at noon. This will be a session of great challenges, but even greater opportunities.

Moving forward with initiatives

As many are saying the political “noise” is at a high pitch with political attack ads filling our television screens and our radio airwaves. Hopefully, each of us is paying close attention to the real issues and has the perseverance to sort through the accusations and determine which candidates deserve your support.
