Personal Finance Education
- By Laura Baumgartner
A new bill is being considered in South Carolina that would require high school students to take a one-half credit course in the subject of personal finance and pass a test at the end of the year to graduate. Financial experts agree that this is a great move, because a survey by the Council for Economic Education found 66% of states don’t require personal finance education.

US Term Limits Impartial Effort in SC
- By Greg Shorey - (former S.C. GOP Chm. ‘58 –’61)
I have stated regularly my support for calling, under Title V, a Convention of States, so that their needed agenda can be enacted. Frankly, I’m surprised that our S.C. Legislature has not been among the first to have already enacted this ‘call,’ as a dozen other State Legislatures have – speaking for “We The People!" Among key issues for the Convention action are Congressional Term Limits, Voter photo ID, a balanced Federal budget and get the Federal Government out of our health care and educational systems. (all consistent with our GOP positions).
