"Roll Call Voting Bill" finally passes

April 24, 2011 J

April 12, 2011 was a momentous day for the citizens of South Carolina. Governor Haley signed the “Spending Accountability Act of 2011” (H.3004 – Roll Call Voting Bill) into law. With this law the South Carolina Legislature moves from one of the five weakest on transparency to one of the most transparent in the country. All votes on bills or resolutions with the force and effect of law will now be recorded, so that South Carolinians may see how their representatives and senators vote. The bill passed unanimously in the House. In the Senate, the bill passed with 33 Ayes and 11 Nays. Four of the 11 who voted Nay were Republicans (Campsen, Grooms, McConnell, and Verdin).
