The South Carolina ACA Anti-Commandeering Act, H.3020 (more info here) has been introduced for 2015. If passed, it would “gut Obamacare” in the state. Your action is needed to help this bill move forward.
STATUS: H.3020 was referred to the House Labor, Commerce and Industry Committee pending further action. The bill must pass through committee successfully before it can receive a vote from the whole house.
PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS – It doesn’t matter where you live in the state, please follow all these steps to support H.3020.
1. Call the House Labor, Commerce and Industry Committee Chair, Bill Sandifer. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move these important bills forward to a vote in his committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.
2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on H.3020.
