On February 26th, The SC State House passed H3509 which is a resolution to affirm the states rights guaranteed by the 9th and 10th amendments of the US Constitution.

Unfortunately, it appears the transparency bill doesn’t cover such resolutions.  We spoke with Dan Hamilton (House District 20) of Greenville, SC who shared with us that the vote was unanimous in favor of the bill.

Some of the Spartanburg County legislatures signed on to the bill.  They are as follows:

  • Allison
  • Parker
  • Millwood
  • Littlejohn

Be sure you call and thank them for signing on to this bill.  Those who failed to sign on as sponsors are below:

  • Mitchell
  • Cole
  • Forrester
  • Kelly

The bill has been referred to the Senate.  A similar version already exists, S424 in the State Senate, which the Spartanburg County Senators have already signed on as sponsors.

    When I saw the meager representation of Spartanburg signers on to the House Sovereignty Resolution, I emailed Kelly, Cole, Parker, and Littlejohn. I got no answer from either Kelly or Cole–and you see they did not sign on. Thanks to Parker and Littlejohn for representing us on this issue.

    Tonight I received an email from Derham Cole. Here is an excerpt from his email: “I did support H.3509, which we passed out of the House yesterday.” I appreciate his response. It is still a bit unclear whether he was a “sponsor” or simply “supported” the Resolution. This is not a semantical issue. Words have meaning. In any event, the Resolution has successfully moved out of the House and into the Senate.
