Current Status - House
House Joint Resolution H 3258 filed by Representative Gilda Cobb-Hunter (D66) of Orangeburg and newly elected Representative Spencer Wetmore (D115) of Charleston is currently in the Judiciary Committee waiting assignment to a subcommittee. Passing through a subcommittee is the first step towards getting a resolution passed. The Constitutional Laws Subcommittee is likely to get the resolution.
Chris Murphy, (D98), Dorchester, Chair of the Judiciary, will make that assignment. Calls are needed to Representative Murphy to encourage him to do so.
ACTION ALERT: Contact Chris Murphy and ask that he assign H 3258 to the appropriate subcommittee.
Two Members of the Constitutional Laws Subcommittee signed on as cosponsors to last year's ERA resolution (H.3391); William Weston Newton and William Wheeler. They should be contacted and asked to sign-on again.
Wm. Weston J. Newton (D120), Beaufort ... Committee Chair
Justin T. Bamburg (D90), Bamberg
Russel W. Fry (D106), Horry
William W. Wheeler III (D50), Kershaw
