SCETV/SC Public Radio
South Carolina House Republicans pushed a restrictive abortion ban bill that failed in the state Senate and officially died last week. House Speaker Murrell Smith said the chamber will take the issue up again next year, but that the ball is in the Senate’s court.

On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for November 15, 2022: a look at 2021 crime statistics for the Palmetto State; a recap of the abortion debate in the statehouse and where things could go in the next legislative session; an update on the economy; and more.
