Pre-filed legislation

December 12, 2012

Oconee County’s two resident members of the State House of Representatives have pre-filed a pair of bills to be considered during the 2013 legislative session, which begins next month. District Two’s Bill Sandifer seeks to amend a law, to allow for “Brianna’s Law.” If approved, the amendment would increase to life without parole or death, in cases in which the prosecution seeks the death penalty for murder. District One’s Bill Whitmire pre-filed a bill to move Purple Heart Day in South Carolina from the third Saturday in February to the 7th day of August, to coincide with the date that General George Washington originally authorized the award.
