Default Legislators offer ideas, little action to reform state’s prisons

Legislators offer ideas, little action to reform state’s prisons

Review of proposed bills shows nearly half are stuck with single House committee

GREENVILLE, S.C. —"WYFF News 4 Investigates discovered 30 bills filed this session that would reform South Carolina’s prison system.

Just one of those bills ended up on the governor’s desk.

It allows qualified inmates to attend the funeral service of certain family members.

Of the other 29 bills, 13 are currently sitting in the House’s Committee on Judiciary.

Six of those bills have been in the committee’s hands for more than 400 days."

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
