Point of Sale Update
After failing to give H.3272 third reading last month, the legislation remains in the Senate Finance Committee, while retaining its place on the Senate Calendar. The Finance Committee has not met to consider H.3272. With the state budget looming, it is unlikely that the Committee will take up the bill until later this spring. Over the past couple of weeks, SCR staff has been meeting with the 13 Senators who opposed third reading of H.3272 and seeking explanation for their opposition to addressing this crisis. We have also been meeting with leadership to determine SCR's course of action. We remain optimistic that, with your support, point of sale assessment will be addressed this year. 

How Your Senator Voted on POS
Below is a list of the roll call vote to give H.3272 third reading. Largely the vote was down party lines, however, it should be noted that Senators Elliott, Reese, and Setzler broke ranks and voted to support the amendment. Here is how the vote broke down:

Alexander, Bright, Bryant, Campbell, Campsen, Cleary, Courson, Cromer, Davis, Elliott, Fair, Hayes, Leatherman, L. Martin, S. Martin, Massey, McConnell, Mulvaney, O'Dell, Peeler, Rankin, Reese, Rose, Ryberg, Setzler, Shoopman, Thomas, Verdin

Anderson, Grooms, Hutto, Land, Leventis, Malloy, Matthews, McGill, Nicholson, Pinckney, Scott, Sheheen, Williams

Coleman, Ford, Jackson, Knotts and Lourie (Lourie had official leave from the Senate Wednesday)

Your grassroots work is incredibly important to getting H.3272 back out of the Finance Committee. Please take a minute to CALL YOUR SENATOR.

If your Senator voted yes, your message is:

THANK YOU for your support, leadership and patience;
Addressing point of sale is far too important to SC's economy to let die;
Please do not give up on this effort; and
Please help us move this bill forward.

If your Senator voted no, your message is:

Addressing point of sale is far too important to SC's economy to let die;
All parties had agreed to the compromise that was on the table;
SC Realtors will not relent on this issue;
Please reconsider your position; and
Help us move this bill forward.
