Friday, January 12th, 2018

Governor Henry McMaster called on the S.C. Senate to immediately pass H. 3643, an important bill ensuring protection from anti-Semitic hate crimes, in time for signing on International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27.

“Anti-Semitism has no place in South Carolina, and the passage of this bill would go a long way towards ensuring that our state and its college campuses provide a welcoming environment for those from all walks of life,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “I’m proud that South Carolina continues to lead the fight against anti-Semitic discrimination and would ask that the Senate immediately bring the bill to the floor for a final vote, so that we may send the strongest possible message to the world this January 27th on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.”
