I received the following legislative alert out of South Carolina today:
The Senate’s version of the South Carolina Compassionate Care Act passed today in the Senate Medical Affairs Committee. Lawmakers on the committee voted 8-6 in favor of sending the amended bill to the floor!
Now is the time for your Senate lawmaker to hear from you. Click here to send an email to your senator, asking him or her to support S. 212.
This is a tremendous step forward, but time is short for a vote by the full Senate. Lawmakers only have until April 10 to vote and send the bill to the House before time runs out this year. Let’s keep the momentum going!
While it’s unlikely that the Senate will vote on S. 212 before the clock runs out, it’s crucial that senators hear from their constituents while the bill is on the floor. If the bill doesn’t pass this year, we can build momentum for next year.
So please contact your state senator right now. Click this link to launch our messaging system to send an email to your senator in support. Then, forward this message to your social media and email contacts in South Carolina and help spread the word!
