COLUMBIA, SC — Americans for Prosperity – South Carolina (AFP-SC) today urged Governor McMaster to quickly sign HB 3605, a bill to prohibit the state from denying an occupational license based solely on a prior criminal conviction.
Concurrent legislation has now passed the State House and Senate.
AFP-SC State Director Candace Carroll released the following statement:
“For those who have successfully exited the criminal justice system, the next step is to become full, productive members of society. Too often, occupational licensing requirements stand in the way. I am glad to see both the House and the Senate pass legislation, and urge Governor McMaster to quickly sign a final bill that gives those looking to start over a fair shot at success.”
