“Final Push”- Parents urge S.C. lawmakers to pass fentanyl legislation

COLUMBIA, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – Parents who lost a child to a Fentanyl Overdose from York County and other parts of South Carolina made the trip to the Statehouse in Columbia on this Tuesday, to urge lawmakers to move forward with a bill that would create penalties for those trafficking the illegal drug.

Right now, the Palmetto State does not have a law for trafficking fentanyl.

CN2 got word before deadline from House Representative Brandon Guffey there in Columbia, during a House Full Judiciary Committee Meeting, members got rid of the language of Senate Bill 330, and inserted the House Fentanyl Trafficking bill language.

Now it will go to the House floor for a vote. We of course will keep you updated with the latest.

With just days left in this year’s legislative session, those there say the clock is ticking.

In the video, CN2’s Renee O’Neil made the trip to Columbia to learn more about the status of these fentanyl bills.
