Lawmakers may be delayed; inaugural plans iffy

Jan 10, 2011 12:36:00 PM - thestate.com
S.C. lawmakers may adjust the scheduled start of their legislative session Tuesday.

Monday’s snow and ice storm will still be affecting roads Tuesday, making it difficult for some legislators to get to Columbia,

Senate Republican Caucus spokesman Wesley Donehue said the Senate plans to meet at noon, likely with a small group of senators, and then recess until the afternoon to give time for roads to improve and more senators to arrive. According to the state Constitution the Senate must meet and elect officers the second Tuesday in January, Donehue said.

The House had not decided what it would do Tuesday, said Greg Foster, spokesman for House Speaker Bobby Harrell, R-Charleston.

Rob Godfrey, spokesman for Gov.-elect Nikki Haley did not yet know if inaugural activities – including Tuesday’s scheduled Family Fun Night at the state Fairgrounds – would be affected. Haley, a former state representative from Lexington, is scheduled to be sworn in Wednesday as S.C. governor.
