On Wednesday the state Senate's education committee is set to vote on a bill to allow school personnel to carry loaded weapons in public schools.

With only 12 days left in this year's legislative session, the S.C. Senate started debate Tuesday of a proposal to fix the state's crumbling roads. Dan Patrick that passed out of the Senate last month.

Bennett says he wants to help constituents that would feel a burden of a gas tax hike by giving them some tax credits and he wants to give an even bigger boost to people like police and first responders. Our highways were built largely with such a user fee, the gasoline tax.

"The bottom line for me is too many families are coping with too many tragedies and in a very narrow few cases where the current law enforcement and judicial system doesn't provide tools, this bill could save a life", Ratti said.

The ad also mentions Gov. Carroll Campbell, who was the last governor to raise the gas tax.

After a four-hour discussion of more than 30 proposed amendments, the House voted 134-16 to tentatively accept its top education leader's plan to inject $1.6 billion into public schools, simplify the complex formulas for allocating that money, and target certain disadvantaged student groups for more funding.

Yet, Senator Rob Bradley, a Fleming Island Republican who has shepherded marijuana-related legislation through his chamber for the past three years, says that smoking is off the table.

"It can come back next year", said Bradley.

In the Senate, Rob Bradley (R-Fleming Island) has struck the idea from his bill, explaining it imposes undue barriers for terminal patients or those that simply move to a new doctor. SB 864 would have put a time limit on how long state agencies can take to form rules for implementing laws passed by the legislature.

"With 42,000 miles of center-lane road in SC, there's no way feasibly possible that we could maintain the system we have", with the current budget, he says. Ronnie Sabb, D-Williamsburg, says it's up to drivers who are exhausted of bad roads to contact their senators.
