SCACPA’s Advocacy activities this past week were highlighted by CEO Chris Jenkins and Board member Ken Newhouse meeting with House Ways and Means Committee Chairman W. Brian White (R-Anderson). Conformity issues were discussed in detail, and we were able to answer questions about the issue. The talks included our description of the effects to South Carolina if there is no Conformity. We thank Chairman White for his time, and we are glad he heard our concerns.
