The end of the legislative session is one month away, which means this week is "crossover week." That's an insider way of saying if a bill hasn't been passed out of its originating chamber -- either the State House or Senate -- by the end of the day Wednesday, that legislation is not likely to go anywhere this year without a supermajority vote.

On this episode of South Carolina Lede, host Gavin Jackson discusses a number of the bills still up in the air (including controversial ones dealing with medical marijuana, outlawing plastic bags, and abortion) with the Associated Press' Jeffrey Collins and South Carolina Public Radio's Russ McKinney.

Then, Russ sticks around to quiz Gavin about South Carolina history in this week's Did You Know segment.
