S.C. Senators heard testimony this week about the challenges the state’s electrical grid faces as more and more people buy electric vehicles and what that demand translates into from energy consumption as the country works to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for October 30, 2021: a look at how Gov. Henry McMaster wants to spend more than $2.5 billion in federal COVID-19 money; SC Education Superintendent Molly Spearman announces she won't run for a third term; what it will take to improve the electrical grid as more electric vehicles are produced in the country; and more.
