Staff reports | The old saying goes that it’s not a pretty sight watching either laws or sausages being made.
This week, though, a little bit of mayonnaise must have been added to the mixture. State Rep. Anne Parks, D-Greenwood, sponsored H. 4147 — and got just about every other lawmaker in the House to co-sponsor — a congratulatory resolution celebrating the 100 years that Duke’s Mayonnaise has been in business.
And who said bipartisanship didn’t exist? Maybe more mayonnaise is needed each week. (Add a little cheddar cheese, Dijon mustard and pimentos. Then you’ll have a South Carolina favorite — pimento cheese.)
Most of the other 60 new bills introduced were resolutions to name highways for people or congratulate them for public service. A few bills went through to codify regulations of state agencies.
About the only substantive bill introduced was by Rep. Katie Arrington, R-Summerville, who introduced H. 4130, which calls a constitutional amendment that seeks to change the rules on how House and Senate committee chairmanships are picked, including a term limit of 12 years for anyone in the position, with several provisions.
