Dear Friends and Constituents,
It was a busy first week in Columbia, where we kicked off the 2022 Legislative Session.
Thankfully, South Carolina remains open for business and I am ready to work for you this year! If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that being prepared and resourceful is of the utmost importance
In 2022, I am not only dedicated to achieving the goals below, but I will continue to value conservative planning and preparedness.
We begin another year in South Carolina with a Republican majority in the House, the Senate, and a Republican Governor. I look forward to championing many conservative issues together. Below are the big 5 important items that my colleagues and I have set out as our House Republican Caucus Agenda for 2022:
Redistricting: Every decade, our state leaders work together to redraw our state’s legislative and Congressional districts to account for population shifts and ensure that everyone in our state is being fairly represented. During our first week back, we worked to finalize our Congressional plan. To see if your House, Senate, or Congressional district might change in 2022, visit redistricting.schouse.gov.
A Facelift for SC: This year, South Carolina will receive several billion federal dollars, and our job is to figure out how to use them. I am committed to using this money wisely, prioritizing conservative budgeting and spending, while giving South Carolina’s roads, highways, water, sewer, and broadband connectivity a much needed facelift and expansion.
Cutting Taxes: I believe in conservative principles and that means keeping taxes low. This year, as we prepare and finalize our state budget, I will vote to cut income taxes for the hard-working people of South Carolina and District 43.
Election Integrity and Reform: Secure and fair elections are the fundamental building block of our nation. In 2022, I will support passing legislation that creates uniformity and consistency in the way elections are run in the state. Through this system, we can be sure to uphold the integrity of every single vote cast in South Carolina.
Education Savings Accounts (ESA): Adopting ESAs would give low-income families access to educational options. Parents of eligible students would receive a flexible education grant to purchase education services from the provider of their choice. I look forward to giving parents more choices in how to best educate their children!
I look forward to accomplishing these goals and more in 2022.
