Welcome to Palmetto Family Alliance’s sixth Legislative Scorecard. In this publication, we have selected several key votes from the 121st General Assembly (January 2015–June 2016), and used those roll calls to score each legislator on family-related issues. By reading the descriptions of the issues and looking at your legislator’s votes, you can determine if your legislator has been a leader for the family, or if he or she has made the work of defending family values more difficult.
Palmetto Family Alliance is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization. We are the legislative action arm of Palmetto Family. We exist to promote, protect, and preserve family values, and to make South Carolina a great place to live and raise a family. As part of that mission, we monitor and educate the state legislature on issues relevant to family values. These issues range from state policy on education and taxes, to social issues like life and marriage.
As you will see on the pages that follow, the 121st session was very successful for us. Several of the bills we liked were passed and every bill we rated detrimental to the family was defeated.
If you would like more information on pro-family legislative action, please visit our Action Center or sign up for our email alerts. We send periodic updates on legislative issues throughout the year, especially during the legislative session. This will keep you up-to-date on issues that affect your family.
