A SENATE RESOLUTION

TO SUPPORT AND URGE THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO TAKE ALL NECESSARY AND PROPER LEGAL ACTION AGAINST THE ENACTMENT AND ENFORCEMENT OF H.R. 1.

Whereas, the United States Constitution vests primary responsibility in state legislatures for setting the "times, places, and manner" of congressional elections; and

Whereas, this allows states and localities to determine how to conduct elections in a manner that best suits the needs of voters in their communities; and

Whereas, House Resolution 1 (H.R. 1) mandates unconstitutional changes through a top-down federal power grab, which reverses the longstanding history of state control of the electoral process and places unprecedented limitations on political speech. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate:

That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, support and urge the Attorney General to take all necessary and proper legal action against the enactment and enforcement of H.R. 1.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the South Carolina Attorney General.
