The battle over the budget proviso prohibiting schools from imposing a mask mandate reaches the state Supreme Court this week as the federal government opens a civil rights investigation over the matter.

On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for August 31, 2021, we look at the latest on lawsuits against mask mandates in the state as well as a civil rights investigation by the US Department of Education on the matter. Also in this episode: South Carolina's new Office of Resilience seeks to reduce future flood damage; how Palmetto State hospitals are handling an surge in COVID-19 cases; and more.

We want to hear from you! Leave us a 1-minute long voicemail at 803-563-7169 to tell us what your life has been like over the past year.
