Pint Bill passes 1st reading in Senate

scbrewers

Things have been pretty quite on the Pint Bill front since a compromise was reached on May 9. But Tuesday morning, the bill finally made it to the floor of the S.C. Senate for what turned out to be a successful first vote.

By a vote of 31-1, the bill received a second reading in chamber. That next and final reading is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday. Following that vote, the bill goes back to the S.C. House of Representatives, which must – and very likely will – approve the proposed changes from the version they passed earlier this year. After that, it’s on to Gov. Nikki Haley to sign into law.

No word on how quickly the changes will go into effect if and when the bill becomes law.
