H4500 was introduced by Representatives Carl Anderson, Dist. 103 (Georgetown, Horry, and Williamsburg counties, Wendell Gilliard Dist 111, Charleston, and Seth Whipper Dist.113, Charleston, and Dorchester counties.

Because of the deadline to get the newsletter published this information will be a couple of weeks old when you see it. There will be more to follow on this, I am sure.
