Caregivers Win! House and Senate Override Veto


THANK YOU!  This is a great stride for family caregivers in South Carolina. Both the House and Senate overwhelmingly overrode the Governor’s veto of $2 million for respite vouchers for family caregivers.  South Carolina family givers provide over $7.4 million in unpaid caregiving services.

    Members of the House who voted in the affirmative were: Alexander Allison Anderson Anthony Atwater Bales Ballentine Bannister Barfield Bernstein Bingham Bowers Branham Brannon G. A. Brown R. L. Brown Burns Clemmons Clyburn Cobb-Hunter Cole H. A.
