South Carolina: 2023 Legislative Session Adjourns Sine Die

Earlier this month, the South Carolina 2023 legislative session adjourned sine die. This means the regular legislative session is completed for the year. However, Governor Henry McMaster did call the General Assembly back into a special session to finalize the budget and other issues of importance to the state.

The 2023 regular session was quiet for sportsmen with only a handful of sportsmen-related bills introduced, and two bills signed by Governor McMaster.

Senate Bill 101 allows the Department of Natural Resources to issue specific hunting and fishing licenses for disabled residents. S 101 took effect immediately.

House Bill 3868 designates the second Saturday in November of each year as “Women in Hunting and Fishing Awareness Day.” S 3868 took effect immediately.

Even though the 2023 regular legislative session is over, the Sportsmen’s Alliance will continue to monitor activities during the special session and will inform you if any action is needed.
