Public confidence and private interests

Sunlight has always been the best disinfectant. The League of Women Voters of South Carolina strongly believes our democracy is best served by maximizing transparency in the actions of our public officials. We have been reminded repeatedly over the last several years that there are serious gaps in South Carolina’s ethics laws. We now have the best chance in years to insure integrity in state government, or we can fall short with half measures. The governor’s Ethics Reform Commission and three committees in the General Assembly are working on solutions, but there are many pressures to stop short of what is needed.
