The 15th session of the South Carolina Silver Haired Legislature was held Sept. 10-12 in Columbia.
The three legislative priorities we approved were:
We have also agreed to work with state Sen. Thomas Alexander and the Joint Committee on Aging to help with the restructuring of programs to prevent duplication of services. Alexander was our guest speaker and has assured us that we have a place in the discussions. We expect to attend two meetings in November to see what we can do to help.
We think these three priorities are important to the 950,000 seniors in our state. If you would like more information about the Silver Haired Legislature or would like to join the Lowcountry Caucus, please get in touch with me.
