Statehouse Report is a weekly legislative forecast that informs readers about what is going to happen in South Carolina politics and policy. Founded in 2001, the issue was distributed through 2007 to paid subscribers, although a weekly commentary and cartoon were provided free to all readers.
Starting in 2008, the respected publication’s news, analysis and commentary is available without charge to all readers thanks to generous support by underwriters.

WHAT WE DO
Statehouse Report serves as a weekly behind-the-scenes research toolkit to help businesses and organizations keep a step ahead of what’s going to happen at the S.C. General Assembly. It’s packed with advance inside information you need so you can be prepared for votes, meetings and interactions with lawmakers. Among our strong points:
- Advocacy edge. Statehouse Report can serve as a monitoring system to keep you informed early about what’s going to happen. By having a little extra time, you’ll get better results because you’ll be able to plan and implement a strategy that may provide the advocacy edge. For in-state and out-of-state organizations and professionals, Statehouse Report can help you be better prepared for legislative battles.
- Diverse features. Delivered weekly through the Internet, Statehouse Report provides advance information on House and Senate floor agendas, calendars of committee meetings, weekly legislative updates, a weekly Tally Sheet of new bills and Statehouse news briefs.
- Underwriter-supported. Major businesses and organizations from across the Palmetto State make it possible to provide readers with the weekly Report for free. Underwriters say they support the Report because it provides something they can’t find elsewhere: a fresh look and good legislative intelligence about what’s happening at the Statehouse and in Palmetto Politics.
