2021 SC Legislative Wrap Up

SC Legislative Wrap Up 

Friday, May 14th, 2021

This week concluded the 2021 regular legislative session. The SC Chamber and our partners (local chambers and fellow pro-business associations) saw many notable victories this year. These include:

Tax Issues:

  • Tax Conformity H.4017 (SUPPORT): Passed and enrolled for ratification. The Governor is expected to sign the bill into law.

Education and Workforce Development Issues:

Adapting to a New Way of Doing Business Issues:

Other Issues:

 

Thank you to our partners as well as the Governor, legislative leaders, and legislators on both sides of the aisle who supported us in working on these business-critical issues. This year’s progress would not be possible without their support.
