No time to write this morning. Before noon I will have testified at 2 state Senate subcommittee meetings, held a press conference and met with two Senators—an unusually busy but important morning.
The issues are these:
1. Protecting businesses from workers’ compensation premium increases by maintaining legislative oversight of the methods used to determine medical service compensation.
2. Increasing the state’s ability to identify and stop false and fraudulent claims for payments from the state.
3. Protecting over 300 small, locally-owned auto glass installers from unfair trade practices of one foreign-owned BIG business.
4. Creating a Division of Small Business and Entrepreneurial Development within the Department of Commerce to devote some resources to helping local government plan for and grow locally-owned businesses.
It’s a great day in South Carolina.
