Should the Richland 2 School District be allowed to get away with its lies about what happened on Jan. 25 at the board meeting? Should Pamela Davis be allowed to get away with the lies she told in her interview on WIS-TV? And what about Teresa Holmes' statements on WIS-TV? What is the best way to get them to tell the truth?
S. 203 was approved in the S.C. Senate and sent to the S.C. House. Instead of passing it and sending it on to the Governor, the House tampered with it and sent it back to the Senate.
Yesterday (2/15/2022) the Senate stomped on it, 0-38. What the heck did the House do to that bill?
Here's how it looks in the Senate Journal (at the end of 2/15/2022).
S. 203 (Word version) -- Senators Hembree, Gustafson and Bennett: A BILL TO AMEND SECTION 59-19-60 OF THE 1976 CODE, RELATING TO THE REMOVAL OF SCHOOL DISTRICT TRUSTEES AND FILLING VACANCIES, TO PROVIDE THAT DISTRICT TRUSTEES GUILTY OF MALFEASANCE, MISFEASANCE, INCOMPETENCY, ABSENTEEISM, CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, MISCONDUCT, PERSISTENT NEGLECT OF DUTY IN OFFICE, OR INCAPACITY SHALL BE SUBJECT TO REMOVAL FROM OFFICE BY THE GOVERNOR, TO DELETE NOTICE REQUIREMENTS AND THE RIGHT TO APPEAL, AND TO MAKE CONFORMING CHANGES.
Was it the "delete Notice requirements and the right to appeal" that killed it? Or something else?
Now what happens? Can it go back to the House? Could the House approve it without amendment and now send it to the Governor?
Is something better than nothing?
