When a bill set to special order in the SC Senate that means it goes to the TOP of the voting order and is definitely brought up to vote on.  Today there was a vote in the Senate to set the gas tax bill – the bill with NO reform just straight up tax increase – to special order.  A 2/3 majority is needed to set a bill to special order.

We are VERY thankful for the 18 Senators who said NO today to moving this bill up.  Please thank them.  Do it now.  Call them, Facebook message them, email them.  Take the 10 minutes right now to find their contact info – you are a resourceful person you can do it – and tell they you appreciate their vote today.

UPDATE – GAS TAX VOTE

By a vote of 23-18, the threshold was not reached to fast-track the gas tax bill. Thank you to Senator Tom Davis for speaking against this misguided legislation on the floor today.
