House Reapportionment and Vaccine Mandates
Over the past few months, we have been working to redraw the lines of the South Carolina House districts. Once a decade, the House is tasked with redrawing the lines to accommodate for population shifts as South Carolina continues to grow and change. Last week, we passed a new plan for our House districts. I look forward to connecting with the people of District 85, both new and old.

I was extremely proud to outlaw the unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandates imposed on South Carolina by the federal government and Biden administration. This is a huge win in safeguarding our personal liberties and medical freedom.
We worked long into the evening Thursday to pass a bill that protects both businesses and the hard-working people of South Carolina. Under this, public entities can not mandate a COVID-19 vaccine, and private employers must honor religious and medical exemptions.
I fought for this legislation because it honors and protects the rights of all South Carolinians, including private business owners, first responders, local governments, school districts, and employees. I am proud of what we accomplished this week, and I will continue to fight any and all federal overreach in South Carolina. The bill now resides in the Senate.
