This week in Washington, Congress sent its $1.5 trillion omnibus spending plan to President Joe Biden for his signature. The spending bill also includes earmarks for the first time in more than 10 years, specifically $373 million for a variety of projects, infrastructure upgrades and initiatives across the state. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Democratic Congressman Jim Clyburn were the only members of the South Carolina delegation to support the bill.

On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for March 12, 2022, we discuss the omnibus spending bill recently approved by Congress and what it means for South Carolina, the passage Sen. Tim Scott's (R-SC) anti-lynching legislation, the activity this week at the state house, and more.
