A new legislative session commenced on January 10, 2023. In South Carolina, legislative sessions last two years, meaning bills that are introduced in 2023 have through May 2024 to complete the course.

SCACPA’s Governmental Affairs committee in cooperation with the lobbying team at Copper Dome Strategies have evaluated pre-filed bills and worked with SC regulatory agencies to identify legislation SCACPA will work to move through the new Legislature and on to the Governor’s desk.  Alternatively, if there is legislation that is harmful or needs amending, we will work together on that as well.

This legislative session shows great potential not just from the perspective of championing bills to enhance the CPA profession, but for furthering the value and reputation of CPAs at the State House. Following the midterm elections in November 2022, we have seen many new faces mainly on the House floor. Senators are up for reelection in 2024.  SCACPA has an opportunity to showcase the value and impact of CPAs on the SC business community and the importance of CPAs as the most trusted advisors. We look forward to furthering relationships with more senior elected officials as well as the newly elected members.
