SC Gov. @HenryMcMaster enters the House chamber to deliver his 2021 State of the State address. #scpol
McMaster’s address is being broadcast on @SCETV and streamed online:…
McMaster thanks frontline workers and others who helped South Carolina persevere through the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’ve never been prouder of our people than right now.” #SCSOTS2021
McMaster argues other states have “gone too far” in responding to pandemic and “trampled personal freedoms.” Names some of the common conservative targets: LA, Chicago NY, SF.

“We took a road less traveled – a better road. We slowed down, but safety remained open.” #SCSOTS2021
About half of the lawmakers in House chamber give @henrymcmaster a standing ovation for his call to pass the so-called “heartbeat bill” banning abortion after ~6 weeks. Dems of course not clapping at all.

A lot of GOP leaders expect this will be the year it passes. #SCSOTS2021
McMaster calls for reform of South Carolina’s magistrate system, noting the lack of scrutiny and training for judges “has been detailed in the media.”
