The “Uni-party” Continues their Struggle on the Freedom Caucus

In 2023, the tremendous majority began off the legislative session demanding a “loyalty pledge” from the 16 most conservative members of the Home. In what appeared akin to a soviet-style promise, the Republicans demanded that everybody of their caucus signal a promise to not negatively marketing campaign in opposition to any sitting Republican.

The sixteen now recognized extra broadly because the South Carolina Freedom Caucus (SCFC) stayed steadfast to their voters and declined. The last word outcome: they left the GOP caucus, making a fractured Republican physique, however their momentum seems to be making the “Columbia Cartel” dig of their heels even deeper.

The primary week of the 2024 is proving to be no much less drama crammed than the final thanks largely to Consultant Anne Thayer (R), Guidelines Committee Chairman. The super-majority is now operating with laws that may additionally restrict free speech, although this yr’s try is cloaked per se as a rule. Readers might do not forget that the GOP finally misplaced its struggle with the SCFC final yr in a federal court docket lawsuit across the loyalty pledge, however some sources have suggested that this try at centralization of presidency by a rule may very well be an uphill battle.

The vote on this laws is deliberate for tomorrow, January 11. If handed, it will do the next:

  • Restrict the variety of amendments that may be proposed to solely 5 per member.
  • Of the proposed amendments, solely 24 can be chosen to be heard.
  • The Home Majority Chief, Consultant David Hiott (R) will select 12 amendments and 12 can be chosen by the Home Minority Chief, Consultant Todd Rutherford (D).
  • Delete the movement interval and all references to it.
  • Revise the interval for invoking cloture in order that no additional amendments may very well be launched.

In chatting with a Home member this afternoon, there does look like in depth bipartisan opposition to the proposed invoice, and regardless of the place one falls on the political spectrum, the opposition to censoring South Carolinians throughout the state is an excellent factor.
