(Statewide Session)

Indicates Matter Stricken
Indicates New Matter

The Senate assembled at 12:00 Noon, the hour to which it stood adjourned, and was called to order by the PRESIDENT.

A quorum being present, the proceedings were opened with a devotion by the Chaplain as follows:

II Timothy 4:7

As we gather here in this Senate Chamber today, my hope is that we can soon join the Apostle Paul in declaring: "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."

Let us pray: Holy Scripture makes it crystal clear, O Lord, that Paul was surely justified in making the claim that he records in II Timothy. He truly had done the very best he could do, he had tried to be finally the sort of servant he was called to be, and he genuinely held fast to his life-changing faith. Now, dear God, each one of us has the opportunity to do some reflecting as well, as this Senate is convened for this late June session. May each of these Senators and every one of their aides also find themselves able at this juncture to affirm unhesitatingly that, "I have truly tried to do my very best for the good people of South Carolina, my Lord." And may history reflect that such is indeed the case, for the benefit of this State and for this Nation we love. In Your blessed name we pray, O Lord. Amen.

The PRESIDENT called for Petitions, Memorials, Presentments of Grand Juries and such like papers.

Remarks by Senator SETZLER

Yesterday afternoon I came before you to report the sad news about Stephanie Jones-Fitts' passing and was not able to fully express my thoughts. I reflected on this last night and during the prayer by the chaplain this morning. Stephanie touched each one of us during the time she worked with the Senate from 1985 until yesterday.

As we mourn her, we also need to celebrate her life and her contributions not only to the Senate but also to the State of South Carolina. We can celebrate her life by also celebrating the people who work with us each and every day. Our staff -- the people who work with us every day in the Senate, those who give their time, their energy, and their commitment to us -- are, frankly, what makes us. Many times we do not realize this or we take for granted, regrettably, what they do for us.

I am reminded of when my mother passed in 1994, and I was out for several days. When I returned, I got on the elevator with one of the Senate's staff, Kenny. He looked at me and said, "Senator, we are glad to have you back." His smile and what he said to me that day meant more than he ever understood.

As we celebrate Stephanie, celebrate the people who work with us every day, give them credit for what they do for us each day, and thank them.

ADDENDUM TO THE JOURNAL

The following remarks by Senator JACKSON were ordered printed in the Journal of May 10, 2022:

Remarks by Senator JACKSON

Thank you, Mr. PRESIDENT. Members of the Senate, this is actually, believe it or not, my 29th sine die. Senator HUTTO, when I first came here, I didn't even know what sine die meant. And I asked the question of some of the leadership and they said you still don't need to know what it means. Just all you need to know is that you need to vote for it. I think that's what Senator John Matthews told me, okay. I said could you explain to me what it means. He says you don't need to know. All you need to know is to vote yes. And I did. I voted yes and still did not know when I went home that day. I was hoping that someone from the press didn't ask me what does sine die mean because it really would have been very difficult to explain it. I would tell you this. I would support Senator HUTTO 100% and I'll tell you why.

There are a couple of mantras that I live by. One is I was told as a young man that there are some victories that cost too much. I was also told that there are some things that are worth falling on the sword for. Some things that are worth blowing up everything for -- not many things -- only a few things. When you find those things that are worth falling on the sword for, make sure -- make sure you explain why. And I will tell you that hate crimes is one of those things. In 1999, Senator RANKIN and I were here. Senator HUTTO was here. Senator MALLOY was here. We passed a Hate Crimes Bill in the South Carolina Senate. We were -- we were commended all over the country by all kinds of groups -- conservative, nonconservative groups for the South Carolina Senate passing a Hate Crimes Bill. Unfortunately, that Bill was never taken up in the South Carolina House. That was 23 years ago. Let me say this again. We passed, Senator HEMBREE, the junior Senator from Horry, former great solicitor, great friend of mine, we passed a Bill. We debated it, we voted on it in 1999. 23 years later, we cannot even have a debate on it. Think about that again. 23 years ago, Senator SETZLER, we debated it, we amended it, we voted on a Hate Crimes Bill -- 23 years ago. 23 years later, we cannot even have a debate on hate crimes in South Carolina. I don't think that's something that we should be proud of; I really don't think that's something we should be proud of. Regardless of how it turns out, let's debate it. Let's vote up or down on hate crimes. Many of you would ask why use this now? This is perhaps the only tool we have -- Only thing we have left to even get a debate. I have even offered, again, without calling my good friend out -- and we are great friends, he and I go way back, Senator HEMBREE, the junior Senator from Horry, before either one of us were in this Body, Senator, you remember when we first met and we served together. Should I tell it? It was the young democrats of Richland County. Your lovely wife, yourself, and many of us worked on it. He has a Bill, Senator HEMBREE -- had a hate crimes Bill. When we first discussed this Bill, those on this side of the aisle said that Bill doesn't do anything. It's not the strongest Bill. We don't want to consider it. We have made the compromise to say let us bring up that Bill. Let us bring that Bill to the floor, Senator CAMPSEN. Let us debate, Senator SENN -- let us debate that Bill. Let us vote on that Bill. I am even on record of saying -- I said to my colleagues in the House, the representative from Charleston, Representative Gilliard -- I said if the only Bill we can get out this year would be Senator HEMBREE'S Bill, that is progress. That is progress. And that is all we are asking for. I remember another issue, Senator DAVIS. You did a masterful job, great job with the Medical Marijuana Bill. You persevered. You worked. You never gave up. All you asked for year after year was a debate. Let us debate it. You said correctly so that if we ever get a chance to debate the Medical Marijuana Bill, we will learn some things and we will discover some things we did not know. We did. It was one of the most informative debates that I've been a part of since I've been here in the Senate. So, yes, I will not allow this opportunity to pass without once again challenging all of us. Let us just put it in the sine die Resolution. Let us vote it up or down. If you want to pull the Bill from Judiciary, Senator HEMBREE, the Senator from Horry's Bill, let us debate that Bill. Tell us what you don't like in a Hate Crimes Bill. Let us take out what you don't like in a Hate Crimes Bill. Let us pass something, even and listen -- I am publicly reluctantly say this, even if it's a shell of a Bill that gives us hope that we can come back and do something later that perhaps has more substance to it. So, I support the amendment that Senator HUTTO has, and I would say -- I'd say to those of you that are on my side of the aisle -- what are you willing to fall on the sword for? What are you willing to lose for something that is right? And I'll remind you of what I was told as a young man a long time ago, some victories cost too much. Yeah, you may get your project. You may get something else. You may miss out of this. But I am willing to lose everything I have in a budget, everything I have in the budget to see that hate crimes is passed. If hate crimes is passed and JACKSON gets stripped of everything in the budget, it would be a very successful time for me because I know in the long run, it benefits more people. Again, only two states -- only two states do not have a hate crime Bill. I commend the House. They passed it. They did a good job -- South Carolina and Wyoming, is that something we are proud of? 23 years later we can't even have a debate on the Bill. So, I support the amendment that Senator HUTTO is trying to add. Thank you.
