Public records reform effort faces uphill fight in S.C.

From The State:

Forty-four states require legislators to disclose who they work for. Many also require some disclosure about how much those legislators are paid by their employers.

Not South Carolina.

Palmetto State politicians only must disclose money earned from government agencies and from contracts between their employers and government agencies. There is no requirement to disclose the private companies that legislators work for, some of which may stand to gain financially by laws passed by the General Assembly.
